Alex Metric fires off a disco house remix of Silk City and Dua Lipa’s ‘Electricity’ as official video released
Alex Metric joins the cast of house DJs chosen to remix Silk City and Dua Lipa‘s “Electricity,” adding groovy bongos along the original’s high pitched strings. Lipa’s stirring vocals to continue to ride the rhythms in this re-work, falling on a funk-driven bassline that drives the momentum toward rowdy dancing. Paired with other fun elements like the occasional cowbell, Metric has fashioned a refreshed rendition as jubilant as the original, but unique enough to stand on its own.
It only makes sense that Metric took a crack at a Silk City edit. The British artist helped co-write the original and has previously collaborated with another remixer on the roster, Ten Ven, who brought darker tones to his version. Other remakes came from The Black Madonna and MK for a powerful slate of artists taking their stab at the single.
In addition to a grip of house remixes, Diplo released the official dance video to the original. Silk City consists of the Mad Decent label boss and “Uptown Funk” producer Mark Ronson.
