Verve Records are releasing their latest remix compilation entitled Verve Remixed: The First Ladies, and have enlisted the likes of Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead, and more to remix soul/R&B songs from the 50’s. We still can’t get Bassnectar‘s “Feeling Good” remix out of our head, and now we have a new one from our favorite producer out of Australia.
Flume‘s take on the classic Marlena Shaw song sees more of a house vibe than we were used to seeing on his debut album, but the variation in sound is highly welcomed. The vocal glitches from songs like “Insane” are still there, and we’re provided with a steady dancefloor beat that brings “We No Speak Americano” to mind with it’s catchiness and ability to make you get up and dance. I personally think Flume sounds best when he works with female vocalists, and Marlena Shaw‘s vocals fit perfectly in the downtimes between where Flume picks the beat back up.
