The XX - Angels (Four Tet remix)

Four Tet gets his hand dirty once more with yet another remix for The XX.  The first time around, Four Tet delivered a remix of  "VCR" from the trio's debut album. This time Four Tet has sprinkled his production magic on Coexist opener "Angels".  The remixes could not be any more different from each other, as the first was a near dancefloor shuffle banger, while the "Angels" rework offers up a mere atmospheric shift with barely audible hints of percussion (we think we hear a couple of faint claps at some points and a kick definitely shows up late in the track). Four Tet doesn't exactly take this track to new territory but he does make it his own, demonstrating the subtle similarities between the artists' work in terms of sense of space and atmospherics.  Listen to it below:
