Animal Collective released the album Merriweather Post Pavilion in early 2009 and has received considerable praise for their album, (Pitchfork has gone as far as calling it the best album of 2009). The internet savvy band have been releasing a lot of material lately, whether it be EPs, LPs, or recordings of live shows. However, through all of that, My Girls still remains as one of my favorite songs of theirs. The verse repeats itself while the music constantly builds up to the eventual climax in the end. This version was mixed by Montreal based DJ HATCHMATIK. By adding a simple drum beat and a catchy disco baseline and fading them in and out at the right moments, HATCHMATIK has transformed the track from one that slowly reaches its peak to one that explodes into your ears from the start but at the same time retains a portion of the original track’s build up. HATCHMATIK, a member of the Peer Pressure Party Crew, has been spinning at shows across the world and making plenty of remixes, but for me, this is his best remix yet.
