Can’t get enough of “We Can’t Stop?” Try Dan Deacon’s insane Miley remix.
Fresh off of her three 2013 VMA nominations, Miley Cyrus has received another prestigious honor: a one-of-a-kind remix of her chart-topping “We Can’t Stop,” courtesy of electro-pop performer Dan Deacon. Now, we know what you’re probably thinking — and NO, the experimental musician didn’t just throw in a bunch of “untze-untze” and call it a day. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) Nope, he straight-up gutted the hit, or, according to Deacon, “Nothing was added, only taken away.” Hey, it’s not called the “50% Reduction (Straight Chop Remix)” for nothing!
Listen to Dan Deacon’s “We Can’t Stop 50% Reduction (Straight Chop Remix)” after the jump.
The result? If there were a Venn diagram illustrating “The perfect ’Flashdance’-style pump-up jam to get you through those last five minutes on the elliptical” on the left, and “How you feel when you wake up after a night of twerking too hard and dancing with Miley” on the right, this would fall squarely in its central crossover zone. And if you thought THAT was hard to wrap your mind around, wait’ll you find out that Deacon’s is only ONE of this mixtape’s 37 tracks, all of which are either remixes of or inspired by “We Can’t Stop.” You’re also allowed to name your price, and we know, we know, “It’s my wallet, I can pay what I want,” but come on! Throw these musicians a couple bucks!
