With soda-bubble keys and barrel-rolling drums, LA producer Blood Diamonds disrupts the steady march of mermaid-maned Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen,” the first single from her forthcoming album, Halcyon. The pair’s meeting is the happy result of this summer’s Full Flex Express tour, where Goudling’s boyfriend Skrillex toured Canada by train with Blood Diamonds’ buddy and collaborator Grimes. “Blood Diamonds is the most exciting thing I’ve heard in a long time and I want us to live together on Mars one day,” Goulding explains. Stream the remix below, followed by Goulding’s just-released “Anything Could Happen” video and her 2011 FADER FORT performance.
