Wish I Was Ft. Geena Fontanella – High Hopes
Aussie producer tyDi’s chill project Wish I Was is back, this time with a cover of Panic! At The Disco’s ‘High Hopes.’ His first cover in a long and lauded career, tyDi treats the source material with respect and puts a uniquely danceable spin on one of today’s biggest hits. It’s always a risk covering another artist’s work, but the reward here is undeniable. This isn’t so much of a copy as it is a re-imagination, a cinematic and atmospheric spin that uses Geena Fontanella’s powerful voice and a downtempo underbelly to keep things bumping smoothly while it broods.
