SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): The Good Natured – “5-HT (Kat Krazy Remix)”

When the energy is right, the crowd will follow.  Even if the energy is attached to a song or group your crowd doesn’t even know.  The Good Natured, responsible for 2011’s “Skeleton,” quietly dropped “5-HT” with a clever video and modest level of oomph.  But that all changed when remixers Kat Krazy got their conniving little hands on the track.  Of course, the lyrics are still mostly hard to understand and a little… less poppy than a big room remix like this likes to have, but there is no doubting that the bass and beats of this mix will get your body moving.

SONG OF THE DAY: Kat Krazy ft Susie Ledge – “See the Sun (Big Time)”

There’s definitely a trend brewing of producers who are mashing disparate elements together and coming up with pop masterpieces. On his debut single “See the Sun (Big Time), Kat Krazy, known for his remixes of Coldplay ft Rihanna, Rye Rye, and Foster the People, manages to turn audio ADD into cohesive brilliance.  Elements of the track include keyboard rolls, Fatboy Slim-style big beats, horror film synths, police sirens, cartoon voice toasting, random glitches, insane builds, gunshots, dramatic drops, Enya-like vocal layering, ’90s  trance hooks, and of course the gorgeously uplifting vocals of Miss Susie Ledge.  “See the Sun” is one of those memorable WTF records that quickly demands attention from the unending sea of mindless EDM releases each week.
