Do good remixes determine the fact that the original songs are good, or do they mean that the song is a piece of shit that DJs can perfect? Well this is definitely no shit, Marina & The Diamonds‘ “I Am Not A Robot” was definitely on major blast before anyone decided to mess with it and the remixes have yet to strip away too much of what makes her version so good. NY rookie Penguin Prison translating the bounce of this song into mirrored mosaic disco fabulocity. Check it out.
