I’ve blogged about the Delicious Vinyl RMXXOLOGY album before, but I haven’t picked it up because the tracks so far have been hit or miss. This remix by London electro outfit Hot Chip of the Pharcyde’s classic “Passin’ Me By,” is one of the brighter spots on the album. The group keeps the same type of low key production as the J-Swift original, but I’m diggin’ the arrangement, even if it falls off by the time it hits the chorus and the second verse.
