MNEK combined Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” with B-52’s’ “Love Shack” earlier this year and it is still in heavy rotation in my home and car. Over the past year or so the singer/songwriter/producer has proven he has a talent for combining popular songs that you may not have thought would go well together and turning them in electronic monsters.
This time he’s chosen to “refix” Cher’s “Believe” and Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do.” It’s unexpectedly awesome in all of the best ways. And, even with all of the production surrounding his voice, his vocals still manages to stand out.
This “refix” doesn’t have anything on the “A Thousand Miles” or “Never Leave You” (Lumidee) “refixes,” but it’s still pretty good.
MNEK recently released an EP titled Small Talk, which featured songs such as “Every Little Word,” “The Rhythm” and “Wrote A Song About You.” It was nice, but since fans had already heard many of those songs, I think it’s safe to say we’re already itching for new material.
