No Sleep Tonight (Enter Shikari) remix

I was determined to get this remix done from start to finish in under a day. As a result it's a little rough around the edges, but I think it's done; something this simple and this noisy probably shouldn't be fretted over.

No disrespect to Enter Shikari, but this is one of those times when you'd like people to hear the song before they see the name of the band - because even if Enter Shikari aren't really your thing, you might still like this remix. I've directed it away from the metal-with-a-hint-of-electronica of the original version and, I think, coaxed a half-decent indie rock tune out of it. Fans of the likes of Biffy Clyro, Idlewild, Hundred Reasons, Saves The Day, et al, will probably enjoy this.

Certainly there's no denying the guy's commitment to the cause when he sings his lines in the middle-eight. Plus, he correctly states the approximate distance from Earth to the Sun as he does so - a shining example to kids everywhere! Surely that alone makes it worth a listen.
