Lana Del Rey; the mystery, the old-time Americana aesthetic, the baby soft voice soaked in melancholy and 1960’s nostalgia. She has become an inspiration for flower crown-clad Tumblr girls all over the world. From Sound Remedy toCedric Gervais, many electronic artists also draw inspiration from Lana and her hauntingly beautiful sound. And now joining that list is dubstep DJ and producer Datsik.
Earlier this week, Datsik officially released his remix of Lana’s album title track, Ultraviolence, out on Firepower Records. The remix is a perfect marriage between Lana’s husky croon and a different flavor of Datsik’s signature dubstep style. Ultraviolence showcases the softer side of Datsik we aren’t use to hearing, proving his versatility as a producer. Lana’s original vocals are masterfully layered over melodic drops and synths, with no shortage of bass for all the dubstep fans out there.
While it’s not the heaviest or grimiest track that Datsik has produced, its number one spot on Beatport’s Dubstep chart prove that fans are liking this Lana Del Sik partnership. We can see this track becoming a staple in sets for the rest of 2014.
