Way back in January, we featured Mokadem as part of our January Edict and then became infatuated with her EP, out that same month. Basically, we here are The 405 quite like her dark, often glitchy, house stylings. And now she's taken on the task of remixing Swedish chanteuse Lykke Li's 'No Rest For The Wicked'.

What was already a dark and brooding track about heartache becomes something all the more ethereal, that magical quality Lykke Li possesses given an almost new lease of life. The wonderfully crisp but dark electronic tones Mokadem uses throughout removes the mysterious fog that surrounds the original track and opens up the pitch black sky above, stars and all. It's a wonder that Lykke Li has never thought of getting into doing house vocals because her voice works perfectly in complimenting the minimal beats, especially when given the Mokadem treatment.

Check out the remix below, along with her forthcoming UK dates:

  • Live Dates
