Monsieur Adi has finally unleashed his much hinted at reMix of Lana Del Ray’s Brooklyn Baby, taken from her album Ultraviolence. Whist we’re not generally fans of Del Rey reMixes, this one is something a bit special, concentrating all of Adi’s strong points into one bassy ElectroPop juggernaut. The man really is on of the top talents working in Pop music today, and it;s been quite a ride watching reach this point.
Adi combines a few elements into his mix of Brooklyn Baby. There a nice retro undercurrent, delivered by an 80s sounding arpeggiated bassline, and this contrasts neatly with a skippy R&B beat and booming subs. Creating a more interesting backing that Del Rey’s voice is used to, Adi flexes his recently absent orchestral muscles and elevates the song with the cinematic rise and fall of his string section.
