Jim-E Stack Remix of Perfume Genius “Without You”

Today, Matador Records has released the Jim-E Stack remix of Perfume Genius’ “Without You,”  which is taken from his critically acclaimed album Set My Heart On Fire Immediately. Stack had previously collaborated with Perfume Genius and Empress Of on the single “When I’m With Him,” and has also worked with artists such as Bon Iver, Caroline Polachek, Haim and more. Stack said of the “Without You” remix, “to my ears a Perfume Genius album always embodies excellence, from the song-writing to the production to the mixing. Every word, note, and sound feels so purposeful while playing its role in each song and in the greater context of the album. I chose to remix ‘Without You,’ because something about it felt timeless and familiar but also grounded and confident. That gave me room to make a completely new instrumental around the vocal.” He went on to say, “even though Mike and I are friends and we’ve worked together in the past, I was admittedly intimidated by the task of remixing ‘Without You.’ Once I found a way to bring the song into my world, I started listening to the remix outside the studio and I knew I had done my thing. I just hoped Mike would want to listen to it too.” You can listen here
