SONG OF THE DAY: RAC ft Kele Okereke and MNDR – “Let Go”
The Remix Artist Collective is a trio of producers who’ve made a name for them by remixing everyone from Lane Del Rey and Penguin Prison to the Gossip and Temper Trap. Their remixes aren’t always aimed at the clubs but rather reinterpret the original songs by adding new elements and giving them a new vibe. They’ve also made the move to releasing original songs, first “Hollywood” featuring Penguin Prison and now “Let Go” with Kele Okereke from Block party and MNDR. The song title is kind of funny since Kele did a vastly under appreciated single with Martin Solveig called “Ready 2 Go.” “Let’s Go” is smooth, shuffling and summery pop with a similar vibe to the recent “Young Love” by Felix Cartal and Koko Laroo. Actually, the more I listen to the song, I keep flashing back to “Steal My Sunshine” by Len (but without the Andrea True Connection sample.) It will be interesting to see if club remixes are forthcoming.
