What a meeting of the minds in this bold remix: one part LIGHTS' lead single from her September album Little Machines, the other a healthy measure of Borgeous' celebrated progressive house style. Lauded for his recent collaborations with Whoo Kid, Waka Flocka, and Wiz Khalifa on "Toast", as well as with Dzeko & Torres on "Tutankhamun", the American electronic artist transforms the measured electro pop staple into an energetic dance anthem. The original still holds ground with heavy guitar influences and strumming interludes, paired with LIGHTS' unparalleled vocal presence throughout the track. But, this base serves as the counterbalance for the track, as Borgeous blends LIGHTS' instrumentality and c'est la vie lyrics with daring progressive builds and perfectly orchestrated breaks. Snag the track when it releases exclusively on Beatport this Monday, November 17th, or December 3rd for iTunes and other outlets.
Get it, get into it, or get over it with this remix.
