Christine and the Queens – Saint Claude (Tourist Remix)


This Tourist remix has proved awfully popular but it’s so nice I’m posting it anyway. I know nothing about the original, so let’s focus on the wonderful downtempo remix alone.

The opening is slow and stately with a harp rippling into view long before any beats are allowed to spoil the scene. Sets up a classic sense of anticipation. A bit like Sabres’ Smokebelch. And that anticipation is allowed to last for quite some time with vocals added but no peak allowed in. And that’s how it continues. In the wrong hands this could be teeth-grindingly awful. But Tourist knows exactly what’s required. A track so beautiful it makes you ache at it all.
