London based producer of ElectroPop reMixes Snapd has turned his hand to the amazing LIGHTS’ latest single ‘Toes’.
‘Toes’ was always ripe for reMixing, it’s got a spine tingling rousing chorus and a chord progression that is soaring with a hint of melancholy, perfect for stretching out into a epic that people loosing themselves in on the dancefloor. That’s exactly what Snapd has done, at seven minutes his Extended Version keeps just enough melody evolving to retain emotional investment until he drops the song proper for the second half. Great stuff!

Florrie may be currently pimping her latest Pop gem, ‘Give Me Your Love’, but there’s still life in here previous (Kitsuné approved) awesomeness, ‘Call 911’, yet!
Snapd (who we have previously featured with his reMix of Sunday Girl’s ‘Self Control’) could very easily become a real favourite round here. He has a knack for striking the prefect balance between dancefloor and Pop. With ‘Call 911’ he has sprinkled his clean ElectroPop production with hints of Electro-House and even Electro tinged R&B, but seem to have drawn out more of the song than some of the (many) other reMixes. It’s a hard effect to quantify, but if you listen to the other reMixes (save maybe Fred Falke’s) and then put on Snapd’s, the track seems to come into it own in a way it hadn’t previously, like song and reMix were always destined for each other?
I’ll quit waffling now, enjoy:

Jade Williams A.K.A. Sunday Girl’s second single will be a cover of Laura Branigan’s 1984 hit ‘Self Control’. For a well covered track, Sunday Girl doesn’t do a bad job of making it her own, haunting and slightly otherworldly, and the Acid bassline is a nice touch too.
I predict we may be seeing a lot more reMixes of this track in the months to come. Right now we have this pretty awesome upbeat ElectroPop reMix from Popmeisters Snapd who just highlight the 80’s-ness of the tune. Azari & III, on the other hand, go deep and dark with their 3am reMix.
