Like her or loath her, the sultry poutmaster that is Lana Del Rey released ‘Video Games’ to the delight of many. Say what you will about the American and her comparative ability to equally fluff a performance and master one in the space of a few weeks, but the track possesses the necessary requisite elements to safely confer its position as a modern pop classic (Simple, enticing and moody).
But do we really care about that? No. What matters is that it has conspired thanks to its simple structure to induce a huge string of remixes much to our delight. Ones that took our fancy include the Jakwob & Etherwood’s DnB take on the track and the brilliantly creative Melo-X live studio cover (also available as a free download).
So now we come to Joris Voorn, and the Dutch virtuoso does not disappoint. Deconstructing the track and putting it back together as a chilled deep house ballad. Strings and Piano still heard throughout but with the addition of a pulsing beat. Very nice indeed and who can resist a free download?
