There's something to be said for a producer's talent when they are known as Daft Punk's secret weapon. If you have any doubts, however, take a listen to legendary beatmaker Todd Edward's latest remix of "The Addict" by Dutch singer/songwriter Bo Saris'. It shouldn't take very long for the remarkable progression of beats and synths to convince you of his pure musical skill. On the very off chance that you still aren't convinced by the 40 second mark, the perfectly timed addition of Saris' extraordinary vocals and soulful lyrics should do the trick. But don't say we didn't warn you: there's no known cure for an addiction to this sexy, electroboogie sound. Listen at your own risk.
