Foster the People’s hit Pumped Up Kicks was one of my favorite indie anthems from last summer and now it gets a synth-added danceable remix courtesy of The Knocks a whole year later. You might recognize The Knocks from their remix of Chiddy Bang’s “Dancing with the DJ” back in November. I’ll provide both downloads below.
UPDATE: Apparently this isn’t a finished official remix as The Knocks have written on their facebook:
“THAT VERSION OF THE PUMPED UP KICKS REMIX GOING AROUND IS NOT THE RIGHT ONE IT IS A BIG FAT LIE OF AN MP3. THE GOOD ONE IS COMING SOON.”
Oh well I’m still gonna leave it up because it sounds so good already. And speaking of facebook, The Knocks have released a remix of “OMG” by the recently deceased The Streets. The song about Facebook love by the British rappers is transformed into a sweet club groove.
