SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Nikki Williams – “Glowing (Remixes)”
Ask and ye shall receive. About two months ago, I wrote up “Glowing” as an enchanting europop song with electro beats and asked for remixes. Well, remixes by Cazzette, Danny Verde, and Fedde Le Grand surfaced and were heard all over Miami during the Winter Music Conference. Avicii proteges Cazzette go the stadium house route, adding in some unique ’90s trance-influenced synths. Danny Verde fuses modern tribal beats and progressive keyboards for a big room monster that will work on dance floors everywhere. Fedde Le Grand mimics the duality of the original (pretty and hard) with euphoric, angelic energy, balance with grinding electro passages. It’s a strong remix package that will help get Nikki Williams club play to boost the buzz from her internet buzz videoclip “Kill Fuck Marry.” Speaking of which, remixes by Bob Sinclar and Adrian Lux of “KFM” have surfaced as well, and while they aren’t the most dancefloor-friendly, both are great interpretations of the quirky, fun love song.
