Yes, yes, I know, there have been thousands of Ellie Goulding remixes, and hundreds of attempts at her 2013 smash hit, Burn. This one, from New York City producer Dan “Gryffin” Griffith (best known as a member of mash-up duo The White Panda), might be the best of the bunch. Don’t believe me? Let this one play out on your speakers, and prepare to be floored.
Boundless and celestial, the deep, dark grooves of Gryffin do wonders to transform the upbeat original into a lusting, aching affair. Ellie’s slowed-down vocals, a yearning, gushing bassline, and a sexy electric guitar give this tune all the makings of a rapturous romp through the night. Free download here.
