Le Tigre 'Deceptacon (DFA Remix)' (Chicks On Speed Records, 2001)
Deeply funky re-rub of Le Tigre's alternative dancefloor original.
The main mover in Le Tigre is/was Kathleen Hanna formerly of Riot Grrrl pioneers Bikini Kill and the inspiration for the title of Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. The original version of 'Deceptacon' is a Joy Division-esque, driving alt-rock tune with a yelping, urgent vocal.
The DFA take the urgency and redirect it into a funkier direction, slow the vocal down a little and let the song breathe. You could still pogo to it if you really wanted to though.
