Dragonette - Let It Go (Laidback Luke Remix)
As we established last week, Dragonette's new single Let It Go is one of the best synth-pop tracks doing the rounds at the moment - and for those seeking to up its electro-factor a bit, you're in luck. The Laidback Luke mix is a bit of a revelation, positioning Martina's vocal amidst a rumbling, grinding onslaught of riffs that positively flip out of the speakers with ecstatic glitchiness. There's a bit, about two and a half minutes into the mix, where everything properly 'goes off' and it's like the song's been tossed into a whirlpool of production effects and electronic tomfoolery, and through sheer, blinding chance has emerged as something of insanely danceable proportons. Or maybe that's just Laidback Luke's considerable talents coming up trumps again - either way, we're fans.
Let It Go is released on the 2nd April.
