How important is a producer to an artist? Well, theÂ Michael Jackson sound we all love wouldn’t really exist without Quincy Jones. The psychedelic pop genius of Oracle Spectacular wouldn’t be nearly as adventurous without the vision and direction of producer Dave Fridmann. Would there even be Snoop Dogg without Dr. Dre? M.I.A. without Diplo? I mean the list goes on and on. Don’t get me wrong making music is a collaborative effort, one which like any successful relationship requires compromise and love so it’s silly to say that one person is solely responsible for anything. However, I believe in giving credit where it’s due and having studied many before and after examples, I have to tip my hat off to these guys for helping take these ideas to the next level.Â Anyways, I was so impressed by this Switch remix that I had to take a moment to show appreciation to all the great producers.
This Florence and the Machine remix is nothing short of amazing. Switch, one of the main producers behind M.I.A.’s groundbreaking Kala,Â creates a hopeful yet extremely energetic version of this track that will have you feeling good, thinking, partying and dancing all at the same time. I enjoyed the original but I mother truckin’ love this remix, can’t think of a better song for a Monday morning, enjoy.
