I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for any track that remixes Marina and the Diamonds. Like Chuckie and Benny Benassi before them, the Swedish duo, Dada Life, take on Marina and the Diamond’s latest single “How to be a Heartbreaker,” tar and feathering the sound siren’s original in a trough of electro house grime. Dada Life‘s larger than life kick drums and signature high-energy chord progressions are all at work here, complementing Marina’s alt-rock vocal cuts to satisfy the greasy electro appetite in all of us.Posted by
Zeds Dead have a way of crafting heavy dubstep tunes that retain an undeniable charm. Their newest release is direct evidence of this, as DC and Hooks take on Marina and the Diamonds’ “Lies.” In classic Zeds Dead fashion, the remix opens up with piano bars wrapped in copious reverb. As the production picks up, Zeds Dead unleash their signature wailing bass. Rolling hi-hats throughout the track tease trap influence, but the track remains as dubstep-oriented as ever. In the same manner as their remixes of “Eyes on Fire” and “Wild Heart,” Zeds Dead adeptly balance an engaging female vocal with blistering bass. Pick up the track for free from Soundcloud.
