Love from above

Two remixes from the dance/rock interzone: DFA's extended take on "DARE," the Shaun Ryder cut from Gorillaz' Demon Days, and the Erol Alkan re-edit of "Romantic Rights" by the other DFA, Vice rockers Death From Above 1979. The Gorillaz mix is in the vein of DFA's earlier U.N.K.L.E. remix, "In a State" -- the beginning just adds beefed-up drums to the original version, but halfway through it spins off into an extended digital freakout. Not sure if the "DARE" remixes have been released officially, I've only seen them on a white-label (there's also a Soulwax mix). The Alkan loops a vocal line and adds hysteria-inducing sirens for a great intro; the track is included on the DFA79 remix record, Romance Bloody Romance, which comes out next Tuesday.
