Passion Pit is an electronic band from Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States, formed in 2007. The band consists of Michael Angelakos (lead vocals, keyboards), Ian Hultquist (keyboards, guitar), Xander Singh (synthesizer, samples), Jeff Apruzzese (bass, synth bass), and Nate Donmoyer (drums). All of the band members attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, with the exception of Angelakos, who attended Emerson College.

Grum is on fire. He’s remixed nearly every indie-pop act this summer alone. Grum contributed a remix of Passion Pit’s Sleepyhead for the bands (one of many) remix EPs. Wawa and Little Vampires were included with Grum this time.
One thing that MSTRKRFT is known for is doing a great job with remixing pop songs. From Metric to Usher, John Legend to Kylie Minogue, MSTRKRFT has pumped out some pretty amazing pop-electro tunes that often far surpass the originals. The duo is back with a Katy Perry remix of her Calvin Harris inspired duet with Shoop Dogg, California Gurls. I’m not even going to lie to you, I love the song in it’s original form. Everybody is allowed a guilty pleasure or two, right? Pick up the MSTRKRFT version along with the indie-pop Passion Pit remix.
Update: Definitely pick up the Innerpartysystem remix. Especially if you’re a Snoop fan and want to cream your pants.
Another update: Wow it’s really a big day for leaked pop tracks. Pick up the Armand Van Helden remix. You can really see where he fits in the whole Duck Sauce duo. Disco.

Tegan & Sara’s Alligator gets the remix treatment – 17 times over – by huge names like Mad Decent, Holy Fuck, Passion Pit, Toro Y Moi, Ra Ra Riot, Hi-Deaf and even VHS or Beta. I don’t know if anyone ever needs 17 versions of the same song, but if you think you do head over to iTunes and check it out. I’m really loving the Toro Y Moi, Passion Pit and Mad Decent versions however.
Toro Y Moi adds a beautiful sunny spin on the song, reminiscent of last year’s Classixx versions. Diplo throws an A-Trak club vibe (think of his Heads Will Roll remix) on the Mad Decent version, which I’m really digging as well. Check out the full track list after the jump.
