Clean Bandit are a quartet of violinists and producers who layer classical strings into their effervescent vocal house. Their tracks are what remixers dream about, as they contain so many layers to play with. Taken from their debut, New Eyes, "Rather Be" features vocals by U.K. songstress Jess Glynne. The Magician accentuates the beat on his take, adding punch via shimmering high-hats and an uppity bass groove. All About She add pianos and extra drum parts for extra bounce, while Walter Ego pushes the track further into the realm of 2-step. Rounding things out, Affelaye stretches the song's layers like taffy, adding space between Glynne's vocal lines for a version more befitting the chill-room than the dancefloor.
