Song of the day

"Satellite (The Bug Remix)", by The Kills.

I don't know squiddly-did about The Kills, but I have a hunch the original sounds very little like this. The Bug, aka Kevin Martin, has been pushing the boundaries of sound, often in several directions at once, for as long as I can remember. Here, he sends the concept of dub out somewhere towards the stratosphere. Bass is the place.

Hands up anyone who can hear elements of "Fisherman", by The Congos, buried in the mix.
