It’s a little strange to play this song at 10:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning at the demise of July, but no one is paying for my trip to Plastic People nor my Molly. What’s wrong with you people? Is everyone not on dope. Here, we have Four Tet remixing his former boys from school, Hot Chip. He does that Four Tet thing where he stretches the track from smoove R&B to a seratonin-spiking seven and a half minute groove. I am running out of superlatives to describe what he does. You have a rare gift when you can make music both sad and joyous, let alone this danceable. If he ain’t better than Burial, he’s the closest one.

The Four Tet remix and original video for Hot Chip’s “Look at Where We Are” are below the jump.
