If it seems like everyone and their mother father is remixing Lana Del Rey these days, then you’re not too far off from the truth. The electronic dance music community has welcomed the soulful indie crooner with open arms and Kaskade, a famous DJ and father of three, is the newest member of the Lana fan club with his remix of “Young And Beautiful.”
The producer infused Lana Del Rey’s haunting love song with his signature upbeat, rolling melodies, thus transforming it from a slow ballad to a definite house music anthem. Kaskade’s electronic beats by no means compete with Lana’s signature sound, but they do compliment her voice and take the track in a very different direction. The pulsing rhythms and cascading beats (no pun intended!) are sure to get stuck in your head and add a little bounce to your step.
As if this isn’t all good enough news, Kaskade has made the remix available for free! So go ahead and download this pumped-up version of “Young And Beautiful” straight from soundcloud before heading out this weekend.
