Nextup is this mix from one of our favourite artists: The Golden Boy. Famed for his raucous live shows featuring excellent track selection which keeps the room buzzing all night and fabulous edits, particularly vibrant is his Basement Jaxx refix ‘Oh My Gosh’ (free download here).
Here, it’s the turn of ‘It’s You’ by Blonde – Adam from the duo runs the extremely popular Eton Messy YouTube account – to get that golden touch. Already a strong summer tune, The Golden Boy takes it into the autumn with muffled synth and max reverb on the vocals – similar to the song of the same name by FCL – a hard hitting snare and focus on the beat. He removes much of the sunshine piano phrases, and adds in a syncopated rhythm creating a darker garage track with each element clearly defined and vocals which stay with you all night.
