Hyperpop scene-maker A.G. Cook remixes Charli XCX and Rita Ora's 'Doing It'

PC Music makes garishly vibrant electronic pop music, but the collective itself is shrouded in shadows. Among the many mysteries surrounding it: how many members it has, whether or not all of them are actually people, whether or not you can accurately call it a label, and what (if any) ulterior motives it might have. It seems safe to say that a person named A.G. Cook plays a key role in the group, and may possibly have started the whole thing.

Cook and PC Music have been steadily rising through the dance music underground, and their hyperpop aesthetic—which jams together J-pop, happy hardcore, R&B, and several hard drives’ worth of electronic sound effects—seems ripe to burst into the mainstream. They’ve taken a step in that direction with a new official remix of Charli XCX’s Rita Ora-featuring single “Doing It,” which Cook has turned into something that sounds like a PlayStation-era video game rave colliding happening in a terminally glitchy laptop emulator.


Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora break out katanas and jumpsuits for 'Black Widow'


Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora’s song “Black Widow” raises a lot of questions—like what does it mean that Rita Ora wants to love somebody until they hate her and also like a black widow? And what is up with Iggy’s tautologically fraught line, “If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be stuck singing this song?” And has someone, possibly a close friend or family member, talked to them about the fact that getting into “Fatal Attraction s–t” isn’t something they should be so proud of, and maybe they should consider a course of intensive therapy?

The video for the track only keeps the questions coming. Why is Iggy Azalea working in a greasy spoon with a poster in the kitchen that clearly has a drawing of her on it? What kind of high-intensity boob tape are she and Rita Ora using in those jumpsuits? And did anyone think that there were people out there who were begging to see Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora try their hand at comedic acting?
