Best of 2010 Singles: #13 Gorillaz, "Stylo (Alex Metric Remix)"
Metric - that's Alex Metric, not that shitty indie band - had a sensational year, with his rework of Gorillaz' lead single from Plastic Beach one of the highlights. He loaded it up with "pew pew"s and ramped it up with a ridiculously propulsive beat, along with a bassline which sounds like the cousin of Moroder's for "I Feel Love". Best bit: at 1:35, when the horn riffs vault in along with a slice-n-dice of Bobby Womack's guest vocal. Shoulda been a SMASH.
