4 Songs, 20 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Clean Bandit are a quartet of violinists and producers who layer classical strings into their effervescent vocal house. Their tracks are what remixers dream about, as they contain so many layers to play with. Taken from their debut, New Eyes, "Rather Be" features vocals by U.K. songstress Jess Glynne. The Magician accentuates the beat on his take, adding punch via shimmering high-hats and an uppity bass groove. All About She add pianos and extra drum parts for extra bounce, while Walter Ego pushes the track further into the realm of 2-step. Rounding things out, Affelaye stretches the song's layers like taffy, adding space between Glynne's vocal lines for a version more befitting the chill-room than the dancefloor.

Only one good remix

The magicians remix was awesome but everything else was horrible

Emma Jade / Hifumi-G ,

heard the Affelaye remix on Otographic Arts

One of the older Otographic Arts radio shows, by Kenji Sekiguchi and Nhato, featured the Affelaye remix, and I really like how it gives the song a sort of dreamlike sound and how that affects the lyrics. I think it was the March 2015 show that used this remix.

One out of four ain't bad

Magician remix is ok. The others are garbage and barely tolerable.
