“There’s an instant nostalgia that swings around as summer days end. The idyllic kind in which you’re living completely in the moment. Until the sun dips and the sand cools and then you’re anything but, with the reminder it can’t always be this way. Elle Músa captures the feeling in with her new single, Mango Pops.” – RUSSH
“When this gets all choral and full i was totally enamoured. just like it’s silly to exert yourself on a real hot day, this is gorgeous pop enjoying a refreshing treat in the shade.” – Declan Byrne (triple J)
“From a strutting bassline to euphoric synths, the most uplifting vocal loop, shuffling beats and so many drops you’ll find yourself falling head over heels for it again and again, this remix is about as good as it gets.” – Purple Sneakers
Hot on the heels of Goodchild’s Madchester-infused remix by Goodchild (aka Reggie Goodchild from Confidence Man), Elle Músa today shares another remix of her latest single ‘Mango Pops‘ – this time an expertly crafted disco house groove from Sydney producer Dro Carey.
Having just released his debut LP ‘Nothing Is A Solo Project‘ last week – itself a collection of masterfully produced tracks – his turn on Músa’s ‘Mango Pops’ showcases his innate ability to craft groove-ready bass lines, which he sets below the staccato piano from the original to create a track that, in Elle’s words, makes you “instantly want to dance.”
For Carey, it was the piano from the original that made him “immediately inspired to flip the chords into a house track.” Whilst for Musa the percussion incorporated into the track by Carey “gives me Quincy Jones vibes when the conga style drums come in and feels me with joy“, and transports the listener to distant places: “I can imagine being on holiday in Europe somewhere and driving around windy roads to arrive at a bar by the ocean.”
