Die Antwoord is the type of band we love to hate. On this remix, Guadalara-based Salon Acapulco tapers down the high energy ravings of the two baddest South Africans in the world into something suitable for a midnight beach party on any coast. Salon Acapulco’s chill dance vibes might not fit the winter weather our hemispherically challenged brothers and sisters are enduring, but every year someone releases a track that puts us right on the playa, despite our scarves and mittens. This is the one, to sit in long johns with while soaking in the artificial rays of your UV lamp. Salon Acapulco is well known for their house-heavy dance mixes, but this one deserves special attention for its effective use of Yo-Landi’s club track vocals. It’s a slow-mo juker, with a light take on Die Antwoord’s usually charged agenda and harder sound.
