Ellie Goulding – Lights (Cannonhead Remix)

Why would a Canadian rap group who like to pose in front of the Soviet flag do a remix of Ellie Goulding? I don’t know. And having decided to do such a remix, why would Cannonhead do a downtempo one? I don’t know. Why did this remix only come out a few days ago, even though the song itself came out ages ago? I don’t know. Not very good am I? But it is a free download.

The original is a classy piece of pop/dance rock. The remix takes the melancholic essence of the first half of the original and stretches that out over the whole thing. There’s a fuller feel from extra sub-bass and a sort of deep stoned feel to it all. Utterly, utterly atypical from the rest of Cannonhead’s work on soundcloud but a really nice remix. And so different from Diego Camejo’s version here.
