New (remix) of Belle and Sebastian

Last year, Belle & Sebastian’s Write About Love was one of my favorite albums of the year. So of course I was curious when I heard the opening track from the disc, I Didn’t See It Coming, was being remixed by Richard X.

Where as the original is a bit wistful and mellow, he gives this version a bit of bounciness and a little electro pop sheen. And the video, directed by Lesley Barnes, is just as fun.

Richard X did a supreme job last year of doing a start to finish take on Saint Etienne’s debut disc, Foxbase Alpha, dubbed Foxbase Beta.

Take a listen to his twist on Nothing Can Stop Usagain just giving it a bit more groove and atmosphere:

Naturally, I have to share the original, because it is only one of the greatest singles ever.
