Florence And The Machine Remixed By Stupendously Buzzy Rap Producer

Would you ever pair these two together?
Artist 1: Clams Casino, this guy from New Jersey who’s already got quite the cult reputation for his collaborations (some credits: A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, Lil B’s lusher tracks) and for his own work (Instrumentals is more than well worth checking out), and who’s already got a really distinctive sound, spacey and lush.
Artist 2: Florence and the Machine, British purveyors of drama, Pre-Raphaelitism, big-ass vocals and bigger-ass drums, whose album Ceremonials is a little gothy, a lot kitschy and as far from lo-fi as you can possibly get; completely awesome if you’re into this thing, baffling if you’re not.
You wouldn’t necessarily predict this collaboration, right? It isn’t completely implausible, but you’d probably guess about 500 different combinations before this one. Well, it exists, for “Never Let Me Go,” and the result works quite well! Clams’ atmospherics suit Florence well; the remix’s fairly recognizable as something he produced, but it also gives Florence’s voice the amount of foggy drama it demands. Listen below.
