When word got out that Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, a.k.a, DJ Windows98, opened his DJ set on Friday night with a mash-up of Kanye’s ‘Jesus Walks’ and Beck’s ‘Loser,’ my first thought was: perfect. My second thought was: damn, I wish I could hear that.
Fast-forward to 15 minutes ago, when ‘dj-windows98’ posted the mash-up on SoundCloud. Is it actually Win Butler? No idea. The account only has one ‘sound’ and I just don’t see Butler creating a SoundCloud account just to post the track, but you know what—is the song terrific? Yup. And that’s all that matters.
