Annabel Jones' voice is interesting in the sense that regardless of how poppy she gets in her own compositions, she has a vulnerability that taps into themes of melancholy and wanderlust.
Tim Gunter recognizes this and amps up those themes in his remix of "Happy."
In a move that makes Gunter sidestep much of the cute Internet music that's been on the music blogosphere for the past year, he places the emotional heft on the shoulders of Jones' vocals while he punches in blasts of atmospheric lifts, sawing synths, and trill percussion. This puts him amongst some of the recent bass greats like AOBeats and Slushii, prioritizing streamlined delivery over bloated, grandiose composition.
It's short, concise, and determined -- making it a snack size remix that stands out when compared to other future bass / R&B hybrids of recent memory.
