Song of the Day 6/24/08: Sebastien Tellier - Sexual Sportswear (Donovan Remix)
Donovan remixed a Sebastien Tellier song called "Sexual Sportswear", and there's no more accurate way to describe the sonic differences than this: Tellier's version mainly focuses on the "sportswear" part, whereas Donovan's got the "sexual" covered. The original is watery and clean - the perfect backdrop for this memorable video (warning: titular artistry ahead). Donovan's version hits a lot harder - it's pounding, rhythmic and sweaty. The whole track's strung out on this crazy, relentless tension, so by the end you're left breathless and exhausted. It's kind of similar to...well, no, I've made enough puns in the last two sentences. You get the idea.
