Teenage Londoner Charli XCX says her euphoric "Nuclear Seasons" is about "surviving. It's about being on your own and feeling magic alive when you come through the other side." In this remix, her vocals make a perfect pop-core for Pennsylvania producer Balam Acab's artful burying. He slows her chorus to a cold trickle, wrapping it in waterfalls and a hug of snares and lasers. Watch our interview with Balam Acab about the pleasure he gets from re-imaging songs other people wrote however he wants here, and download the remix in exchange for a "Like" on Charli's Facebook.
