Remixes of covers happen, but it has certainly been awhile since I enjoyed one this much. Death To The Throne’s mash-up/remix of Lykke Li’s “Knocked Up” cover comes to mind and that was over 4 years ago. This discovery surpasses that execution by miles.
See if you can follow me here. Aussie electronic singer/songwriter Chet Faker covered Sonia Dada’s ’90s anthem “Lover (You Don’t Treat Me No Good)” w/an excellent choir for Australia’s triple j radio in July. At over a half a million you tube views, it made the rounds on music blogs for good reason. German producer/remix WKND got a hold of it, sped up the pace and crafted a remix that should be perfect for a fall/indian summer dance party. Got all that? Enjoy WKD’s take on Chet Faker’s version of “Lover” below.
