Collection Features Contributions By Arthur Baker, In Flagranti And Leo James

Today, Astralwerks released The Avalanches' Subways Remixes. The collection includes influential producer/DJ Arthur Baker's remix of "Subways," which premiered earlier this week on Pitchfork. While Baker (Afrika Bambaataa, New Order) is often considered a founding father of hip-hop and electronica and credited with bringing remixing into the mainstream, it has become extremely rare for him to release a remix. Stream the Arthur Baker mix on YouTube HERE.

 Subways Remixes also includes In Flagranti's extended edit, which can be streamed on YouTube HERE, and Leo James' Deep Dub version of the track. See below for track listing. Subways Remixes can be purchased HERE and streamed HERE.
