After dropping his highly anticipated annual Shambhala mix, Canadian dubstep DJ/producer Excision has now taken one of the tracks and released it as an official remix. Just uploaded a few hours ago to his Souncloud page, Excision's remix of Band of Horses' 2006 hit single "Funeral" is now available for streaming and for purchase via SubPOP Records.

The track is rather tamed for an Excision production. With most of the melody and vocals intact, it's a straightforward remix that actually feels more like an edit with the addition of slow-driving rhythms and drops that are surprisingly airy and more on the softer side of melodic dubstep.

Overall, it's nothing too intricate or mind-bending but it makes for a very listenable, light dubstep track. Check out the remix for yourself below, and then grab your copy on iTunes here.
