Indie rockers Wild Beasts went all sensual and synth on 'Present Tense', their fourth record. For the special edition issue of the record, some honest-to-god electronic types move in to show them what's what, reworking their tunes after their own warped visions. Foals offer up a cut, as does everyone's favourite experimental constant, East India Youth. There's also a barely recognisable remix of "Wanderlust" from industrial groovers Factory Floor.

- Present Tense Remixes by Wild Beasts
7/10 Ian Staff review, 15 October 2014
Not content with re-releasing the excellent (oh come on! - Clint) ‘Present Tense’ album with an extra disc of fantastic remixes, those cheeky Kendal (London!- Clint) chaps Wild Beasts throw you vinyl junkies a handful of said mixes on this limited white label for Domino Records. I’m normally not that fussed about the bands I love doing the whole mix treatment but in this case this little handful seem to enhance the already brilliant talents of the Beasts. The A-side has 2 reinterpretations of album track ‘Mecca’, the first being from legendary techno producer and Model 500 man Juan Atkins giving it a bouncy club friendly vibe, Chris Taylor aka Sohn spins a more mellow tweak onto the original with a more minimalist approach.
Over on the flip side the brilliant synth meister Steve Moore fills out final album track ‘Palace’ with a futurist sci-fi ambience that could well be one of Vangelis’s finest moments if you didn’t know any different, finishing off the set are indie superstars Foals who add their trademark plinky guitar sound without taking away any of the heart and soul of the original.
