Grizzly Bear - "Will Calls" (Diplo Remix)

Who would have thought that we would ever see the names Grizzly Bear and Diplo as a part of a single track title. While at one end we are generally presented with grounded and raw emotion through using subtleties to advance songs, the other end carries a much heavier load in terms of overall energy, utilizing synthetic tactics to kick tracks into gear. 

In digging into the remix in which many listeners may not know what to expect, the track can be described in one word, balanced. Diplo refrains from churning the song into a fist-pumping, four to the floor energizer and instead takes a more experimental, leveling approach. In doing so he strips the original track of everything except for the vocals, where he climbs into a groove, minding the environment he is creating each step of the way. By the time the break hits Diplo is in the midst of his stride, manipulating patches of the vocals and heavier elements into a wholesome head bopper.

Both the original track and the featured Diplo remix will be apart of an expanded version of Grizzly Bear's 2012 album Shields. Given what has been released to date, the expanded album should feature an excess of variation through its new content.

Please explain to me how this is house. Love this song, but how much music am I missing out on because y'all don't know your genres?
