Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness (Hotel Garuda Remix) [Free Download]
With “Summertime Sadness” nearing its second birthday, adding another rendition to the still-burning fire would be a risk even if Cedric Gervais hadn’t won a Grammy for his take. Lucky for all, Hotel Garuda threw caution to the wind and put out their funk-edged remix as a free download. Unlike its big room predecessor, Manila Killa and Candle Weather’s effort kicks off with a chopped up vocal selection only the truest of Lana fans even knew existed, projecting it and its more familiar counterparts on a bed of chirping synths, swinging snaps and pulsing chords. Not unlike summer itself, the beat-laden mellow cut exits the way it came in, with its celebrated lyrical slicing providing the same impossible to articulate appeal as the now legendary original. Primed to be played out through the season and beyond, “Summertime Sadness'” latest chapter is available now.
