I know a few people who will go crazy for this reggaie remix of Rolling in the Deep and the ska one below…Adele goes old skool reggae/ska flava! Wish she’d done this version at the Grammys (heard a clip of that, what the Americans made of her crazy Essex-girl babbling, I don’t know – I think they employed the Japanese technique of just smiling and nodding!) Makes me actually like this song (for the record this is the only song I really rate of hers – she deserves the plaudits for creating one of the songs of 2011 with only competition from maybe Lana Del Rey – but the rest of her output can get a little too X-Factor for my liking, or the sixth form poetry/Milton-101 of ‘Set Fire to the Rain’ or ‘Chasing Pavements’ – did you see what she did there? I bet she’d just had the lesson about hard/soft and surreal juxtapositions in English that day!).
Also loving their ska remix of Cee-Lo’s ‘Fuck You’…pretty sure I’ve heard this before, probably because Don Letts is rinsing all their remixes like crazy on 6Music – and quite rightly too. Brilliant stuff. Will certainly play some of these on the show.
Ace name too – Junior Blender Downloads are here for those wanting some MP3 action.
Oh and what other blog can get Adele, Milton’s Paradise Lost AND Reggae into the same post? Eh? EH? NONE I tell thee!
