I'm not sure if I've posted about Robotaki on here before - if not, now would be as good a time as ever. Basically, he's made some really great remixes for the likes of Chilly Gonzales, Shinichi Osawa, Housse De Racket and quite a few others, all of which you can listen to on his soundcloud page.
His latest remix, of DJ Shadow's 'Scale It Back' (featuring the ever lovely vocals of Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano) was obviously a great track to begin with, but I feel Robotaki quite effectively achieved to add his very distinctive style without it feeling overdone; the original atmosphere is still very much in place.
Keep an eye out for him, he's finishing his debut EP as we speak.
Also, the original track has a bit of a mental but highly enjoyable video, watch it here.
