While it’s an undoubted truth that M.I.A.’s music is definitely made for partying, it’s also aimed at a certain type of party goer. With tracks like “Galang” and “Paper Planes,” M.I.A.’s music fits into bass nights, neatly adding in a poppier side to the dubstep and garage. However, this remix from Kaytradamus helps to reinvent the Londoner’s sound for a new audience.
This remix of “XXXO” fits in much more with conventional house styles, with uplifting pianos accompanying M.I.A.’s distinctive vocals, before breaking into a drop that’s certain to get any dancefloor swaying. Gone are the slower drums and the bass stabs; in come faster, cleaner drums and keyboard slices.
Kaytradamus has given a whole host of songs this dancefloor treatment, so head over to his Official.fm page for more where this one came from.
