As dance music continues to go from strength to strength, indie bands must be feeling slightly cast aside, but the party needn’t end on bad terms. British synth pop trio White Lies released their third album BIG TV last year, and now the title track has been treated to not one, but two remixes from German heavyweights Tube & Berger.

First up is the Work For Free remix, a combination of the deep and the chilled–big lush synth riffs and gritty bass stabs–production that oozes style and is exactly what Tube & Berger have become known for. But just when you thought that was that, the flip-side offers the Garbage On The Streets remix, a darker, deeper and immensely soulful take on the original–complete with throbbing bass, funky percussion and minimal vocal chops.

Big TV is out now on Tube & Berger’s own Kittball Records. Indie music might be yesterday’s news, but if dance music producers keep up the remixes, it might just live forever.
