How you gon' touch a classic like Fatboy Slim's "Right Here, Right Now" and give it your spin for a remix? Well, you don't really have a choice when Fatboy Slim himself comes to you and asks you to give it a whirl. Just ask Carmada, the Australian duo who just gave the 1998 hit a beefier bassline and modern edge for the English innovator's forthcoming remix EP, Fatboy Slim VS Australia.

“It's a little surreal to be playing Fatboy Slim tracks to thousands of people all over the world in our sets and then be given the opportunity to remix one of his biggest tracks," Carmada's Max Aaramata is quoted in a press release. Don't worry, purists, Carmada left enough of the original's flavor in tact to keep you satisfied.

The Fatboy remix follows Carmada's NGHTMRE collab "Embrace," which dropped in August. There's more Carmada coming soon, and of course, there are more cool remixes of Fatboy Slim to be heard on this EP, including rinses from The Kite String Tangle, Set Mo, The Aston Shuffle, LO99 and more.

Fatboy Slim VS Australia is scheduled for release Friday. Listen to Carmada's take on "Right Here, Right Now" below.
