REMIXED: Ellie Goulding – Lights (Shook Remix)

by Yvette Travillian

Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” was destined to be remixed a gazillion-billion times. It’s just to be expected when you have a hot ass dance track like that.  Unfortunately most of the remixes I’ve heard have been rather blah, which is why I wasn’t all too hyped when I  came across yet another one – this time done by an electro-funk producer by the name of Shook. However, I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. Shook edited her opening vocals making them come off more delicate and pure then the original and gave the track a nice chilled-out Breakbot-like beat. It’s pretty dope and perfect for Spring. Peep it.

    Another great find! I got a chance to meet Ellie at SXSW and she’s a sweet girl.

    This remix is rather ridiculous. I love how he flips it on the soulful house vibe. However I DO have to say that her voice is kinda weak, and if there was a true soul singer she would KILL this as a cover.

    Yeah this track is jive bananas. And you’re right, Ellie’s vocal strength is very much on the weak side which is why I’m not a fan of her whole album in its entirety. ‘Lights’ has a crazy track and a very infectious hook which is why I dig it. But I’m glad she’s not trying to hit notes out of her range and she’s sticking to her vocal ‘script’. I heard a cover she did of The Knifes ‘Heartbeats’ and I was highly underwhelmed. I would love to see a soul chick cover this though… WHOA!

    Awesome find. I heard some other remixes by Shook he kills it. <3
