Continuing our weekly Jam of the Day post featuring an artist that will be playing this year's Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, we are are pleased to bring you Balam Acab's remix of Lana Del Rey's breakout single,"Video Games."
As if "Video Games" wasn't already heartbreaking and addicting enough, Balam Acab, in a genius move, adds some of Sigur Rós' bleeps and bloops, as well as what sounds like bubbles popping near the end of the song. The resulting remix takes Del Rey's original to a new level, transforming it from a quivering ballad to something ethereal and electronic.
Check it out below and get those feet ready to Hopscotch! Tickets can still be purchased here.
