The original version of Korallreven’s “Sa Sa Samoa” has a transcendent follow-the-light quality due to the ethereal vocals of Julianna Barwick and a sample of a Samoan choir. For their remix, Elite Gymnastics chopped it up, added a sample of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and set it to warp speed. As the track culminates in an epic synth explosion, it’s nice to picture Houston arriving at heaven’s gate on the wings of a breakbeat. The remix is featured on Korallreven’s “Sa Sa Samoa” 12-inch, out now on Acéphale.
