Remix-A-Day: Bat For Lashes - Daniel (Death Metal Disco Scene Remix)


Because we are focusing more on upcoming musical releases around here, new remixes get the short end of the PMA stick, sadly. I am determined to devote one post a day on new remixes, instead of bunching 10+ remixes in bulk. That has become somewhat tacky. Click here to read all of our Remix-A-Day remixes.

We <3 Bat For Lashes: from 8-bulb glory to hitting the dancefloor

You will notice a trend in the remixes that I post up, they are a lot simpler than the big productions you hear a lot. These kinds of remixes are most appreciated when the song in the hot seat is great on its own and needs no remix to validate it. This is the case for Bat For Lashes' "Daniel" and Death Metal Disco Scene do a wonderful job at crafting an understated and enjoyable remix.


The remix plays heavily with shakers, rattlers, and string arrangements. It also does amazing work accenting Natasha Khan's voice as well as one of the most memorable piece of lyric in 2009: When I first saw you, I knew that you had a flame in your heart.
