Foals – My Number (Hot Chip Remix) (2013)

155431

The track opens with lead singer Yannis’s high vocals wailing, “you don’t have my number,” quite sadly, which was obviously in the original but paired with some samples of water droplets and a light synth sounds a little more sad that first intended. Another synth soon twinkles over the vocals and the harmonies that FOALS originally recorded echo over all of HOT CHIP’s interesting use of synths and samples. Soon we are well into the track with a poppy beat and some steady synths that we could expect from a regular HOT CHIP track except with the vocals of Yannis. The British boys have done a fine job transforming ‘My Number’ into a more pop and dance track that their fellow Brits probably wouldn’t have done firstly. The track slowly fades out and your left with the happiness you probably would have you you were listening to HOT CHIP’s ‘How Do You Do?’ and other tracks of the like. Snaps for HOT CHIP and snaps for FOALS! [Source]
