New Remixes & Mashups: Ellie Goulding, Drake & Dwele

Think: Symphonic pop

Chicago’s Hood Internet returns with an orchestral new mashup, blending Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” with hints of Kanye West’s “All of the Lights,” both powered by the Portland Cello Project’s rendition of the latter. The resulting re-work allows Goulding’s weightless vocals to soar over the cello cover, with Kanye’s thumbprint still felt throughout.

Think: Airy, stylized soul

After uncovering a shelved remix of Lupe’s “Superstar” last month, Mr. Mo again looks to the past for inspiration with an airy remix of Dwele’s “I Think I Love U.” “Technically it’s a remix of a remix since the Styles P verses are from the So So Def Remix off the 12″ single,” explains Mo. “I had an unfinished house beat I had been working on lately and thought the melodies from the acapella might match up, so this is what I came up with.”

Think: A gentle drunk dialing anthem

New from New York City-based DJ and producer Jelinek comes a tweaked remix of Drake’s recent offering “Marvin’s Room.” The new track works within the mellow tones of the original while offering a crisp new layer of freshness below the vocalist’s slurred ramblings.

Think: A blend of memorable samples reshaped into something unique

Continuing a string of great mashups this year is the Its Overture duo, this time intertwining a trio of tracks in “Walk.” Working the Bangles’ “Walk Like an Egyptian” with Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side” and Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way,” the track refreshingly blends the three iconic singles, creating a smooth mashup that smacks of each original while maintaining a feel all its own.
