Washington D.C.’s Brett pairs rapid-fire, melodic synth with hypnotizing vocals for an indie dance fusion on their single, “Rap Songs.” The band’s intent was to “juxtapose a bright and poppy instrumentation with a darker lyrical idea.”
Them Jeans’ remix dives straight into the darkness, creating a pleasurable sense of deep house doom with Brett’s words echoing above; it’s as if you’re Alice falling down the rabbit hole to discover a mad, underground wonderland. Inside there’s a drink that makes you dance, a cake that make you dance even better, and no reason to escape.
You can check out TJ’s edit of Flight Facilities’ “Clair De Lune” or Rihanna and Mikky Ekko’s “Stay,” posted on our site, to witness the producer’s obvious versatility. I’ve got this track on replay already, so I’m looking forward to what’s to come, both from Them Jeans and Brett. (I’d like to suggest a mashup of this remix and Monarchy’s “Disintegration” featuring Dita Von Teese.)
What’s really next for Brett is a release of Rap Songs X Visions EP available February 26, 2013 on Los Angeles’ dFm Records. To keep up with the band and hear tracks off their last EP, Confidence X Kate Moss, follow the band on Facebook or SoundCloud.
