Rumors are swirling around the internet that tracks are leaking off a rumored cancelled Remix EP for Christina Aguilera’s Bionic album promotions. Xtina worked with Ladytron on tracks for the album including the absolutely brilliant (but for some reason only included on the deluxe edition) track “Birds Of Prey.” We now have a remix done by one of the members of Ladytron, Reuben Wu, who made the song even more atmospheric with this excellent remix. Hear after the cut.
While Wu did not bring a whole new level or sound to this remix, the mix instead sees all the best parts of the song done in a bigger way with some added embellishments. We have the driving disco bass line below the haunting different vocalizations Aguilera sings over the track, but the 5:33 remix allows for everything to be held out longer and hit harder.
The synthesizers are a huge force in this remix as the motif of Aguilera’s whisperings:
They fight and they feed. They take what they need. The bite as you bleed.
Chilling to say the least and Reuben Wu makes his remix extremely impressive by playing off of all the right parts and making sure nothing is overlooked (as they can be easily in the original if the listener isn’t paying attention).
There are rumored remixes to be coming from the likes of Ralphi Rosario, Bimbo Jones, DiscoTech, Nadastrom, Sticky K, and Gareth Wyn of different Bionic tracks including fan favorites like “Elastic Love,” “Vanity,” and “Desnudate.” I’ll be on the look out, I love this remix! Hopefully they only get better!
