Mates of State is one of those bands that have been around awhile and you can't help but be thrilled they endure because they're just so damn good.

This past April, Mates of State released Re-Arranged: Remixes Volume 1 on limited-edition 12" vinyl. Featuring four interpretations of tracks from Mates of State's latest full-length, Re-arrange Us, it included contributions from noted remixologists DJ Sega, Flosstradamus, The Mae Shi and RAC. Packaged in a classic DJ white sleeve, the 12" EP was limited to 1000 copies worldwide.

But, for folks who prefer the digital to the analog, we're excited to announce that Mates of State’s Re-Arranged: Remixes Vol. 1 is now available digitally at fine digital retailers everywhere. This digital version features a bonus track remixed by Amp Live and not available on the 12" physical edition.

Re-arranged: Remixes Volume 1 Track List
01 You Are Free (The Mae Shi remix)
02 The Re-Arranger (Flosstradamus remix)
03 Now (RAC remix)
04 Help Help (DJ Sega Philly Club remix)
05 The Re-Arranger (Amp Live remix)

The Mae Shi are this interesting and well, "different" young LA band that we saw last year. Their sound is decidedly less indie pop than Mates of State but they've made this remix into something super fun. At the very least, it will make you want to get up and dance around.

(Mates of State are playing this year's Voodoo Experience Festival and should not be missed.)
