Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe (Cold Napoleons Remix)
You know that song you’ve had stuck in your head for the last two weeks that you’re ashamed of loving? You don’t need to be ashamed any more. Little-known producer (duo? trio?) The Cold Napoleons has remixed the super-happy original into an upbeat, post-dubstep roller. The remix introduces some nice new vocal chops (while still featuring the catchy chorus of the original) over smooth square-wave chords and rumbling basslines that sound like they’ve been taken straight from a Blake or Dafydd track. The second half of the track features some bright synth leads and arpeggios reminiscent of Hudson Mohawke’s “Octan”. Overall a very tight production that turns a
brilliant bad song into a great one.
