UK-based Adam Freeland just unveiled this vocal version of his “Summertime Sadness” remix on SoundCloud, and it caught my attention enough to share.
According to last.fm, Adam Freeland is known for his association with “breakbeat”-based electronic music, which, according to Wikipedia, is:
characterized by the use of a non-straightened 4/4 drum pattern (as opposed to the steady beat of house, techno and trance). These rhythms may be characterized by their intensive use of syncopation and polyrhythms. Both meanings are closely connected to hiphop and breakdance.
Not sure how much that applies to this song but…bottom line is that it’s a nice electronic remix to listen to, and that’s what’s important.
