Supposedly it’s the end of the road (Queue Boyz II Men song) for Swedish House Mafia, as they are currently touring on their “One Last Tour,” but I’d like to call bullshit as I think they will be back next year with a “Reunion Tour.” At any rate, I am still a fan and had a great time at their one of many crazy sold-out shows here in San Francisco.
One of my favorite songs by Swedish House Mafia, “Don’t You Worry Child,” is already good in itself, but Brooklyn-based duo The Golden Pony has remixed the track unlike any other. While I’ve heard numerous of crappy remixes, this one is by far my favorite. I actually might even like it more than the original. Okay, I am getting carried away here.
The Golden Pony remix offers a summery, warm, and beach-like pop feel that still makes you want to groove, but just not with all the shenanigans that are involved at a typical Swedish House Mafia gig.
