Lana Del Rey – Young & Beautiful (Huglife Remix)


Fuckin. Nailed. It. Listen, I like the good ol’ Cedric Gervais remixes of Lana‘s songs as much as the next guy, but Huglife just gave LDR the remix she really deserved. The artist formerly known as Slink (aka the artist formerly confused with Sliink) has brought us some amazing remixes in the past, two of my favorites being his “Wicked Games” remix (which I rated as one of my favorite songs of 2012) and his remix of Skream’s “In For The Kill” remix. These past few months he’s been on tear, just dropping remixes left and right. To date, we’ve seen remixes of Chris Malinchak‘s sensational hit “So Good To Me”, Ellie Goulding‘s “Burn” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and that’s just mentioning a handful of them. This has to be one of my favorites of Huglife’s to date, though. It would be a travesty to refer to this as trap as it’s so much more than that. Lana Del Rey contributes the introspective melody and his use of pitched down vocals and reverberated percussion accentuates the mood appropriately. Make sure to give Huglife a follow – I expect more very big things to come from this budding producer.

Also check out his new unoffical edit of Ellie Goulding’s latest track “Burn”, which has been on repeat for me lately.
