The troop behind Clean Bandit seem to be everyone's favorite darlings, and I mean everyone. Apparently, "Rather Be" is about an obsessed Japanese fan that sees their faces and logo all over everything. I guess obsession pays off though because now that Ã¼bber fan has their own song!
The original is this sickeningly uplifting, 90s-sounding dance track. It's such a powerfully joyous sound that I feel like it's even suitable for drag queens. Of course, my personal tastes lean a little deeper and darker, so this Walter Ego remix appeals to my senses most completely.
He turns it into a bouncy deep house track, pulling out tasty bits of Jess Glynne's R&B vocal and creating a club jam for the serious house heads.
The remix is available for download through iTunes. For more on Clean Bandit, follow them on Facebook.
