For some of you, this track may be old news. But for you others, brace yourselves. I don’t pay a lot of attention to remixes, aside from those put out by the producers I keep an eye on, but this remix of First Aid Kit’s “Winter is All Over You” is infectious.
The 23-year-old Baauer (Harry Rodrigues) is signed to Diplo’s label, Mad Decent and is most known for “Harlem Shake,” which has recently become an internet phenomenon. See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IJoKuTlvuM
With this remix of “Winter is All Over You,” Baauer challenges the stereotypical trap and bass sampling route and pulls from a genre usually passed over in remixes: folk. The combination of Klara Soderberg’s vocal chops and the addition of a deep bass line re-imagines a mesmerizing track that I could listen to all day.
