Sky Ferreira - You're Not The One (Cid Rim Remix)

4/03/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

In my opinion, a remix is most successful when it completely transforms a song. And not simply by adding some club banging EDM nonsense on top (and I say this being an unabashed raver). Cid Rim - whoever you are - Bravo, sir, you have met my standards. This remake of Miss Ferreira's most popular song is completely stripped of its grunge rock sound and instead joins the ranks of electro-pop genius. Whatever that electronic harpsichord thing is - it's pure gold. And the cough/drop combo at 1:29 is equally bizarre and awesome (listen and you will understand). Despite the instrumental overhaul, the catchy melody remains largely intact and Sky's voice rings gritty and angelic throughout. This definitely deserves at least an obligatory listen.
