Mashup of The Week: Cracked Obstacle

Cracked Obstacle

Just for you, from the hot ‘n sweat environs of Los Angeles, it’s a dark and haunting mashup of epic proportions. It’s pretty rare to hear blends featuring Interpol, let alone The XX. Well, this one marries both like a cinematic masterpiece. Greece’s Bynar places the vocals of Interpol’s Obstacle 1 atop a remix of The XX’s Intro, with bits of The Freestylers and Arctic Monkeys. And the result has an alluring yet buzzing, dubstep-lite wobble. Even if you don’t know the sources used here, sonic bliss awaits.
