Remix of the Day: 'SOS In Bel Air (Jackson and His Computer Band Remix)' by Phoenix

This is one of those remixes where I've never heard the original, and I'm not sure if I'll ever need to, given that this is just under 10 minutes of near perfection. Great beats, fantastic synths, airy vocals, tinkly pianos, squelchy bass notes - it's got all of this and more.

I'm not sure which bits Messieurs Phoenix are responsibly for, and which bits belong to Jackson and his technological band, but the combination is fantastic. It reminds me a bit of the Time & Space Dubs of Jagwar Ma's album last year (if you haven't got them you must track them down) and makes me long for a whole album of Phoenix remixes.
