Lana Del Rey, yes we have a crush on you. But there have been so many remixes of ‘Video Games’ and ‘Blue Jeans‘ we were beginning to lose interest. Now her third single ‘Born To Die‘ has been reworked, and as we’re huge fans of Clams Casino‘s work, we had to give this one a shot. It’s definitely worth a listen, although the collaboration between the hot producer of the moment and close-to-overkill singer is kinda what you’ve expected: hazy beats in bed with slow-downed pop vocals.
The interesting questions is: who came up with the idea of these remixes. Her label, Universal? Or did Clams send edits out to Lana the same way he did it with Tyler back in the day? We don’t know. But we know we can’t get enough. If you feel us, check the remix out below, as well as Woodkid’s take on the same song.
