‘Xcxoplex‘ featuring Charli XCX, is a powerful rework of “Xxoplex” taken from Apple, and sees the duo push the boundaries of pop once more, the first time both artists have officially featured on a track together. The original “Xxoplex” was a work of controlled chaos with flickers of beauty shimmering beneath the surface, a track described by Cook as “the dark, industrial heart of Apple”. The rework brings the melodies of the original out of the darkness into the light, with Charli adding a soaring vocal hook at it’s centre.
Hannah Diamond and Sarah Bonito angelically step into the vocal booth for their remix of ‘The Darkness’, following the bouncing escapism of Caroline Polachek’s ‘Oh Yeah’ and bass nihilism of umru on ‘2021’. French singer Oklou delivers a classic acoustic cover of ‘Being Harsh’, Denzel Himself delivers furious stuttering beats for ‘H202’, Boyz Noize head straight to euphoric dancefloors for ‘Stargon’ and there’s the off-kilter pop of GRRL ‘Gold Leaf’. New York’s Eartheater delivers a breathless drum n bass version of ‘The Darkness’, caro<3 ‘Drinks Blood’ and Max Tundra harks back to classic dream pop.
