Lido Remixes Alt-J’s ‘Left Hand Free’
alt-J - Left Hand Free (Lido Remix)

Lido continues to prove that, when it comes to the remix game, he’s on point like a pyramid. Following remixes of 2014 favorites like ZHU’s Faded and The Weeknd’s Often, Lido returns with a surprise remix of alt-J’s latest single Left Hand Free.

According to alt-J (via The Guardian), Left Hand Free was originally written “in about 20 minutes” after their label complained that the band’s original idea for a single, Hunger of the Pine, wasn’t a “big single.” While the original tune is filled with “joke” guitar riffs and “clichéd” drum arrangements targeted at the “American trucker” audience, Lido has removed the irony and replaced it with a banging blend of smooth basslines, original synths, and unconventional drum arrangements–there is nothing banal about this banger.

No release date yet on the remix, but you can grab Lido’s I Love You EP on Beatport here, and alt-J’s sophomore effort This Is All Yours on iTunes here.
