Full album stream: Altrice – Stem (remix of Caribou’s Swim)

Nearly a year ago, Caribou challenged fans to a remix contest and the winner was a go-getter named Altrice, who went beyond remixing the requested cut “Sun” and actually remixed the entire Caribou album. Caribou’s Dan Snaith had this to say about him:

“For me Altrice’s entry stood out quite a distance from all the others. His version of the track was focused and distinctive – dramatically different from the original and the other remixes we received,” “Altrice’s music is beautifully simple – focusing on only a handful of elements but ingeniously reinventing them to make each song very much his own. It’s this confidence that makes Stem so coherent – it doesn’t sound like an album of remixes but an album in its own right. The best possible outcome of the remix contest was to discover someone unknown to me whose music moved me. That certainly happened. And then some.”
