SONG OF THE DAY: Scissor Sisters – “Let’s Have a Kiki (Remixes)”
We already wrote about Scissors Sister’s buzz record “Let’s Have A Kiki” when the amazing VideoDrome video version started its own internet meme a few weeks ago. Responding quickly to the buzz, the label has enlisted a diverse range of producers to give it their own spin. Danny Verde serves up a tribal mix with a touch of retro rave sound effects (keeping it on trend with athe latest round of electro tracks making the rounds.) Olugbenga’s downtempo cabaret take seems perfect for a Kiki with capital (or should I say “Special”) K. The bouncey lo-fi mix by 2 Bears keeps the fun of the original and adds a rubberband beat to make it a little more dancefloor friendly. Leave it to the Almighty boys to take a camp record and energize without going completely overboard, this is probably their most commercial mix since Usher “OMG.” So basically, if times are rough, gather your friends, have your own kiki to whichever of these mixes fits your groove.
