"XR2 (Tigerstyle Remix)"- M.I.A.

I've been sitting on this remix for a while and it's stunning. The two brothers who make up Tigerstyle, ethnic Punjabs by way of Glasgow, marry traditional bhangra melodies with hip-hop and drum n' bass sensibilities for an explosive sound that leaps off the speakers. They completely make over "XR2", and one asks why Diplo didn't think of this first. I vastly prefer this to the original, and as summer winds down and frat parties begin, it's time to dust off some quality dance tunes and get DOWN. This is what I'm dancing to, join me?
