Stream: Machinedrum, "U Don't Survive (SBTRKT Edit)"

First featured two months ago on his BBC Essential Mix, here's a full stream of SBTRKT’s edit of Machinedrum’s already-impeccable "U Don't Survive." It's not a radical departure, relying on the same repeated vocals—Out on the street you don't survive/ Now is the time to be alive—but SBTRKT's style naturally turns outward, his drums less jazzy and more suited for a pretty peoples' club system. It's a totally manufactured comparison, since they feature both phrases equally, but listening side-by-side it's as if the original's tone is all "not surviving" and SBTRKT's is all "being alive." The coin is brilliant no matter which way you flip it.
