As I was about to pack up my mic for Minnesota, I knew I needed to do one thing. This song has meant a lot to me since high school. I listened to it repeatedly before going to college in Seattle. I can still perfectly relate to the lyrics.
Really what isn’t there to love about what is probably the best Cults jam to date!? And seriously this remix is pretty darn delightful as well. I think it’s impossible for the Cults, un-remixed or remixed to not make smiles appear on those who listen to their stellar eargasm jams. True story.
Yup, I decided to start [making remixes] with Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” for a number of reasons.
1) I had access to the a capella track
2) I wanted to see how it sounded more ballady. Yeah, it takes some getting used to since I’ve heard it as the awesome almost-disco pounding americana arrangement so many times… but I like it this way too.
3) I just think this song is undeniably really really incredible… and so does everyone else. It’s been on the billboard charts for 21 weeks and only moved up and up and up until it hit number one… and it’s been sitting there for weeks. It’s also been sitting strong at number one on iTunes, the album was the number one on billboard and iTunes as well… it just totally cleaned up. She’s got skills.
