Today we bring you some music from down under thats been turned on its head. Melbourne, Australia-based singer Gotye (pronounced Gauthier for some reason) has been steadily rising in the American pop charts thanks to his infectious single “Somebody That I Used To Know” featuring Kimbra. The original track features a gently swinging Brazilian guitar sample and minimalist elements juxtaposed against a passionate vocal anthem lamenting relationships past. This catchy track plants itself squarely inside your brain after only a single listening, pulling you into Gotye’s quirky little world. For a wilder ride check out LA-based newcomer 4FRNT‘s slamming electro remix. 4FRNT gives this track a kick square in its ass by filling in the blanks with glitchy vocal FX, sonic blips, synth builds and womptastic bass elements. This remix definitely provides a tougher way to get back at that ex-girlfriend through song.
