Listen to et Aliae’s Twinkling Remix of ASTR’s ‘Operate’
The 'Varsity' highlight gets a trappier redo courtesy of the London producer
New York duo ASTR had one of our favorite mini-albums of 2014 with their Varsity EP, six songs of hip-hop-infused strobe-pop with nearly every song a potential lead single. Now, album highlight “Operate” has been given a delightful remix courtesy of London producer et Aliae, who replaces the song’s booming bass and crackling beat with twinkling synths and bedroom-trap drums worthy of a Giraffage album, taking the original out of the dingy club basement and making it fun for the whole family.
Listen to the remix below, and if you haven’t already, make sure to check out Varsity, out now on Neon Gold.
