At the moment I still can’t seem to get enough of Colbie Caillat, an artist who I’ve mentioned several times on this blog. I went to see her perform in London a few months back and I’m eagerly waiting for a new release from her to come. What draws me to her music became even more apparent recently when she described in a recent interview that the two biggest influences of her music were John Mayer and Bob Marley (both of which whose music I share a particular passion for).

I went on the hunt for a bunch of tracks that she has been featured in that wasn’t on her endlessly replayable album “Coco” and came across this track. It’s from an album which I know nothing about aside from the fact that Colbie featured on one of the tracks on it, done on the project Schiller by German artist Christopher von Deylen who’s background is in electronia. It’s definitely a departure from her usual sound – much darker with a heavier overtone then anything shes done before, which displays a versatility I hope carries through to her next release. The track has an atmospheric, almost enigmatic feel and draws you in immediately.

Alright, alright. Here’s my update. Sorry about the delay, I’ve started doing a Masters so time isn’t as ample as it was. I’ve decided to add an extra page to my site to let you know about the site status and when to expect new posts etc.

A friend of mine shared me these two feel-good remixes of tracks that were good in the initial form but the remakes definitely add something new and inventive as opposed to 99% of the usual remixes that aren’t worth bothering with. The first is a track I heard in it’s original form on the radio often and had a sort of “meh” response to it although did think it had an insanely catchy chorus – but this remix takes the track to a new height. It gives the song a new funky, electro vibe and it’s just incredibly upbeat.¬† I’ve played this in the presence of others and it definitely has a universal appeal. So that should include you.

The second is a remix of a song that was already pretty awesome to begin with, but comes with added production from the Neptunes (who sounds like that they’ve used the same drum machine¬† from the track “Lapdance” to create their funky beat). With the extra touches that don’t overpower the melodic sound of the original, the track packs a new punch that takes it over the edge.
