New Song: Coldplay- Fix You (Four Tet Remix)

First made in 2005 but only broadcast to the general public as part of Jon Hopkins' takeover of the Radio 1 late night Residency a few weeks back, legendary UK electronic musician Four Tet aka Keiran Hebden has replaced Chris Martin & co's dish-water bland arena rock with his wonky, this time xylophone-orientated vision. Lots of Aphex Twin-esque rushes of electronic scree add interesting colours and odd-ball noises to the proceedings. The mix then shapes itself into a gorgeously twinkling, reflective climax, the sweet synths providing a more heartfelt dynamic than the original's two-note guitar riff and crashing cymbals.
