    Sam Flax, a California artist and multi-instrumentalist who released Age Waves in 2012 after recording and composing it over a period of years, recently provided the exclusive soundtrack for Saint Laurent's Spring/Summer 2014 collection at Paris Fashion Week.

    Hedi Slimane commissioned Sam to create a 20-minute, extended version of his song "Fire Doesn't Burn Itself" specially for the runway show. The show was one of the most anticipated of the week, with a number of music notables in attendance including Beck, Mike D., Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk, Nicolas Godin of Air, Sky Ferreira, as well as Milla Jovovich, Salma Hayek, Anna Wintour and other staples of the fashion world.

    The song was originally released on his Age Waves LP, but Flax reworked it. The new "Fire Doesn't Burn Itself" stays true to the original spirit while simultaneously twisting in on itself, diving into previously uncharted layers of shimmering echo and transcendental fuzz.

    Listen to the extended mix below:
