With a brand new single out this week, the wonderful musical chameleon that is Labrinth gives us the lowdown on what remixes are currently making him move.
We’ve always championed the homegrown talent that is Labrinth who remarkably is still the only non-X Factor signing to Simon Cowell’s SYCO label.
The ‘Beneath Your Beautiful‘ singer took a brief hiatus at the end of 2012 but has made a triumphant return to his rightful throne as one of the best UK musical talents with the incredible, versatile new single ‘Let It Be’, which is taken from the forthcoming sophomore record ‘Take Me To The Truth‘
The maestro took time out of his busy schedule to give us the lowdown on the best remixes which have been keeping him on his feet.
Janet Jackson – If (Kaytranada Remix)
“Great to hear such a fresh take on a classic Janet Jackson track. Kaytranada’s sound mixing is immense.”
Storm Queen – Look Right Through (MK Remix)
“MK is the man of the minute, hardest working guy on the scene and always seems to add value to a track.”
Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (Kaelin Ellis remix)
“Love this remix, who wouldn’t want to remix a Miley track.”
Notorious BIG – Machine gun funk (Woody Remix)
“Very, very hard. B.I.G, hard beats what more could you want!?”
Cassie – Me & You (Phazz Remix)
“Good beat, I like this remix and it goes down well in the clubs.”
Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Shy FX Remix)
“I love the way he uses real musicians to make a whole new composition. This is no ordinary remix, its a musical masterclass.”
