Following the release of their self-titled debut last year, Ultraísta – the electronic trio comprising Radiohead producer and Atoms For Peace member Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker and vocalist Laura Bettinson – tapped friends and collaborators like Four Tet, FattyDL and Zammuto for remixes that will see release on August 6th on Temporary Residence. You can pre-order Ultraísta Remixes now, and also take an exclusive first listen to Zero 7's contribution to the collection, a reworking of "Our Song": Opening with atmospheric drones that give way to a simple looping synth, staggered percussion, and eventually Bettinson's angelic, distant vocals, Zero 7 build slowly to four-on-the-floor payoff about halfway through, turning "Our Song" into a spacey, sensual track perfect for a 4 a.m. dance floor.
