It comes as no surprise that it’s only been a week, but one of our tips for 2011, Villa, have already got two impressive remixes prepped for 2011. They’ve remixed singer-song-writer Adele and Yeasayer.
First off, we have a preview of Adele’s “Rolling In the Deep” – it ends up sounding like a Soulwax track – banging, but done in a respectful way. A stirring cresendo of sharp piano stabs and a decent set of analog drums, combine with a sublime thudding kick, throw in Adele trademark vocals and we’ve got something quite special.
They’ve also done a remix for Yeasayer’s track “I remember” – a totally different approach has been taken, more indie in its aproach, but equally as good the Adele remix – maybe you could say it’s less club orientated.
We’ve every confidence in tipping 2011 as the year for Villa, any fear of the break-up having an effect on their output has been quickly allayed after listing to both the tracks.
