Lana Del Rey has been releasing little breadcrumbs of news about Ultraviolence over the past couple months, leaving us starved for details about her proper sophomore LP. But over the weekend she released a glut of official remixes of lead single “West Coast” to hold fans over, featuring reinterpretations of the noir-ish song by producers/electronic artists Four Tet, William Carl Jr, Ten Ven and Camo & Krooked.

William Carl Jr.’s version is intriguing, using a dance beat and brass to give the song a Capital Cities feel. Ten Ven churned out a straightforward dance remix, whereas Four Tet did a sort of deconstructed club mix built on endless loops of drums and vocals (Bore Tet?). Camo & Krooked, meanwhile, took the opposite route of everyone, slowing the whole song down and transforming it into a snappy and syrupy piece of electronica.

Hear all four reinterpretations below, and let us know which is your favorite in the comments.
