Beck shares insane Mexican Institute of Sound remix of ‘Wow’

Hear ‘GUAU!’, a crazed edit of Beck’s new single.

Beck’s latest single ‘Wow’ has been given a frazzled new remix, courtesy of the Mexican Institute of Sound.

The electronic project’s edit is redubbed ‘GNAU!’, and it features la Banda Bastön member Mü. To be honest, the whole thing sounds like Beirut stumbling into an arcade. Trumpets share space with Mario samples. It’s completely bonkers.

Listen to the remix below.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 back in June, Beck gave an update on that new album of his. “I mean, technically, I should have this record done by Friday,” he joked. “You know, it’s done when it’s done….It’s done when they pry it out of my hands.”

Catch him on the following U.S. dates:

SEPTEMBER
17 Atlanta, Music Midtown
19 Charlottesville, Sprint Pavilion (w/ Peter, Bjorn and John)
20 Columbus, Express Live
22 Bloomington, IU Auditorium
23 St. Louis, Peabody Opera House
24 Franklin, Pilgrimage Music Festival
