Carousel (SNBRN Remix)
Polar ends of the musical spectrum have collided this morning as we so fortuitously have the chance to premiere the latest deep-house retooling from one of underground dance’s hottest commodities, SNBRN. Lately SNBRN has been taking on remix duties on more straightforward Top-40 fare; from hip-hop infused remixes of 50 Cent or The Game to Mark Morrison and Ace of Base, the young producer has had a chance to heat-stamp his sound (get it?) on a number of differing instrumental structures. But today, the burgeoning and schooled producer has revealed yet another wrinkle into his repertoire with a gloomier dance reinvention for former The Voice contestant Melanie Martinez and her viral hit turned American Horror Story theme song “Carousel”. SNBRN deftly weaves what has become a signature sound of club-fueled, swelling basslines and slick synth progressions dispersed judiciously amongst “Carousel”s vaudevillian instrumentation and Martinez’s haunting vocal incantations for a tune completely unique to and just as groovy as the rest of the SNBRN catalog. About the tune the L.A. based artist stated: “Been a huge fan of American Horror Story, so when I got asked to remix Carousel I couldn’t resist. With dark vibes and a deep baseline I wanted to take this remix to the grave and back. Hope you guys enjoy this tune because there’s no turning back now.” Well said as always good sir.
