Kimbra is one of the few female artists that was put on my music radar in 2012. From her career-launching collaboration with Gotye to the release of her first critically acclaimed album, this New Zealander has taken on a whole new world of fame and doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon.
Recently, Kimbra and Indaba Music created a contest with the task of taking her hit “Settle Down” and mixing it up a bit. While this remix by HYGWID isn’t the actual winner, I find the hot rework to be something worth mentioning. The upbeat nature of the original is indeed “Settled Down” with some downtempo beats and mellow dubstep – nothing obnoxious, just pure bass-thumping delight.
Get at it!
