Ellie Goulding - Lights (Shook Remix) by Shook (Official)
The curse of having long legs is that I walk twice as fast as everyone else. So I'm always that guy who accidently creeps up on you while you're walking on the sidewalk at night.
SHOOK is my favorite DJ right now. I sort of glossed over this track last month because there was a slew of Ellie Goulding remixes coming out. Goulding a popular singer-songwriter from the UK, and I feel like every time a pop act puts out a song-- the music pool gets saturated by DJ's who want an spot on hype machine.
But for whatever reason, I ended up on Shook's soundcloud page and found this:
Phoenix - Lisztomania (Shook Remix) by Shook (Official)
Personally I'm tired of Pheonix because they're way over played.
But this remix hits it in all the right places. So I spent the better part of last night listening to this on repeat. I'm a big fan of the funk approach to electro, and I like how Shook keeps it simple. In my opinion the space around notes is just as important as the notes themselves. So although I enjoy the 'wall of sound' that most electro goes after, I also appreciate the cut down approach.
After soundcloud, I found shookmusic.com and there's a demo video that he did for sugar-bytes (an audio-plugin company). The dude's a super talented keyboard player.
