Fast-forward to today — and in the name of helping out the family, DFA’s Larry Gus has offered up his own take on Little Boots’ latest single, “Crescendo”. Highlighting the track’s already unique sound, Gus transforms “Crescendo”‘s original percussion and chord-driven foundation into a melty bed of synths, vocals, and tribal drumming, topped with cascading electronic sounds and — of course — re-tooled samplings of Little Boots’ clear, sing-song-y vocals. The resulting track retains the song’s original light-heartedness, while combining it with the vague, exciting feeling of a skipped record and an eclectic collection of regional sounds and styles.
