[Download] Starsmith reMixes Betty Who’s ‘Somebody Loves You’

 

Betty Who

So, what’s Starsmith been up to since Clockwork? Well, amongst other things, one of the UK’s finest producers have turned-in this shockingly good reMix of Australian New York resident Betty Who’s track Somebody Loves You, from her recent The Movement EP. The rising Pop star already had a strong line in catchy tunes, the addition of Starsmith’s dancefloor friendly sounds makes is a combination hard to resist.

We’ve previously seem a whole collection of reMixes of Somebody Loves You, including a storming mix from FM Attack. Whereas FM Attack went straight for the 80s jugular, Starsmith comes down of his version with the full force of Disco. An energetic, upbeat, cavalcade of grinding synth bass, sparking keys, and Betty’s chameleon vocals that seem to lend themselves perfectly to whatever music is playing, in this case take on the guise of a big dancefloor anthem. Starsmith’s production is, as ever, impeccable. Which is why he’s off producing famous types these days, we love his floorfillers though.

[MP3] FM Attack reMixes Betty Who

 

Betty Who

Boston’s resident Australian Indie-ElectroPop princess Betty Who has just released a reMix collection honouring her single Somebody Loves You. The packages is the result of a reMix competition, and, although we normally like to steer clear of those, of note here is the winner was none other than Canadian SynthWaver extraordinaire FM Attack, and rightly so his reMix leads the release.

FM Attack works his magic here. The original is an upbeat, guitar and synth fuelled slice of raucous Pop which we see here transformed into a spacey, impassioned, retro synth monster. The combination of FM Attack’s nostalgic synthesizer wizardry and Betty Who’s catchy refrain results in perfect 80s Pop. The maths is simple, add these two things together and you have every element needed to deliver a tune that, even when hearing it for the first time, feels recognisable and comfortable. I’m not sure if Betty Who was trying to come across like an 80s Popstar when she originally recorded the track, but in FM Attack’s hands that’s exactly the persona her vocals takes on. With chiming keys and a bouncy bassline, FM Attack really knocks it out of the park with this mix. A well deserved win.
