Indie rock stalwarts Future Islands are hardly the type you’d expect to benefit from a Jersey club makeover, but a new remix of their breakout single “Seasons (Waiting On You)” by DJ Dodger Stadium brings out the euphoria behind the original’s bombast. The L.A. production duo, made up of Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy, amplify the song’s soaring synth lines with a pulsating house beat, transporting it to club-ready realms. It sounds odd on paper, but somehow it works. After all, who’d have thought that Samuel T. Herring would make such a good house diva?
The remix is DJ Dodger Stadium’s first new release since their debut album Friend of Mine was released in July. After spending a summer touring Europe and Australia in support of the record, DJDS are back in the States with a mini tour stopping in NYC and Vancouver. Check out the dates below.
10/24 – New York, Le Bain
10/25 – Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bowl
10/31 – Vancouver, Autoforms Space
And here is Future Islands’ Letterman performance that made “Seasons (Waiting On You)” one of the year’s unlikeliest hits:
