Hi there, Dr. Whuzzerface here.
Remixes, those wonderful, and sometimes fatally awful, re-imaginings of another song. This particular re-creation takes a song that is acoustically soft, slow, gentle, picks it up out of it’s Mumford-ish doldrums, folds it in on itself, and chucks it into the stylings of yesteryear. This is dubbed by Snapdragons as a Retro Remix but also it begins to sound akin to a few La Roux keyboard riffs and bass lines.
You’ll have a real TREAT from this TRICK of remixing! The treat being that if you follow the player above, you can download this for FREE!!!
For a song so fun, it’s hard to believe there are only 36 “Likes” on their Facebook page, but I suppose they’re just starting out. Makes me excited to see what more they have in store!
