Hear Lana Del Rey's 'Ultraviolence' remixes

Posted on

Unofficial remixes of the title track from Lana Del Rey’s new Ultraviolence have been popping up all over Soundcloud since the album dropped last month, but the first batch of sanctioned versions just got posted yesterday.

Like her past remixes, which have come from everyone from drum-and-bass pioneer Photek to surrealist political rap group Das Racist, the “Ultraviolence” reimaginings pull together three very different acts who push the song in distinctly different directions: PBR Streetgang roughs it up with a harsh electro edge, Sonic Matta transforms it into a smoothly bumping emulation of classic house, and the Penelopes use the original’s wah-wah guitar part as the basis for a disco-inspired version drenched in strings, brass, and deliciously cheesy ’70s electronic effects.
