After recently escaping from the dark abyss, I've decided to brush the decaying moths off of my computer and return to fork/knife. And so now for the second weekly REMIX POST! This is a great one. Chances are, you may have heard of Jose Gonzalez, the talented singer/songwriter from Sweden. His string-plucking skills are extraordinary; he is truly a master of the nylon. Although he's had more recent release, his 2005 album Veneer, features a fantastic remix of a song called "Heartbeats" which is originally by electronic superstars, The Knife. These two versions really demonstrate the power of the remix at its best. They are total opposites. I'm sure one of the two will strike your fancy.
