El Perro del Mar: "Walk On By (W. Pontonen Remix)"

A slow-burning, NordicTrack-ready remix made by W. Pontonen, AKA Pontus Winnberg from Miike Snow.

This remix of "Walk On By," the first single from Swedish crooner El Perro del Mar's upcoming long-player Pale Fire, picks up where the party scene in Hackers left off. Sarah Assbring's unhurried vocal line rides a BPM that'd be great on the NordicTrack, invoking that perfect mid-nineties urban nightscape that the Hackers brats dip around in.

The remix was put together by Pontus Winnberg from Miike Snow, who's been operating as W. Pontonen as of late. He's been churning out remixes for artists associated with the INGRID collective in Stockholm, Sweden, a creative alliance that includes Lykke Li, Smile, Peter Bjorn & John, and the Teddybears. His remix is the first in a series of three reworks of the single that will be released over the next few weeks.

The video for "Walk On By," directed by the multi-talented Frode & Marcus, came out earlier this week - stream the vid below, and if you like in Mexico, Columbia, or the United States, check out Miike Snow on tour this fall.

Pale Fire comes out on November 12 through INGRID and Memphis Industries. You can pre-order it right here.
