Paul Weller "Starlite (Deadboy Remix)"
It's an odd pairing to say the least: mysterious 2-step kid Deadboy (pictured above) remixing iconic British pop star Paul Weller. And yet the odd couple seems to blend together ideally, which likely speaks mostly to the deft skills of the producer behind this shimmering version of "Starlite." Amongst clattering dance rhythms and dark, bouncing basslines, Weller's smoky croon is jacked up into chipmunk territory, and laid amongst dubby piano hooks. Deadboy's remix is practically void of any discernible link to its original source, which could very well be the case for the rest of the tweaked versions of "Starlite" that will drop on August 7 via Island.
