Nina Kraviz takes on Charli XCX and Christine and The Queens in new ‘Happy Mix’
The latest in bold musicianship from Nina Kraviz is her take on “Gone,” the sharp synthpop single from Charli XCX and Christine and The Queens. Her “Happy Mix” flips “Gone” into a futuristic house tune built to churn the dancefloor. Vocals from the original float over a subtle, yet vibrant low-end, accompanied by ethereal synth riffs—an entrancing mixture that stands out while managing to emulate the emotional signature of the piece it re-works. Listen for this one lighting up her sets to come.
Nina’s remix to “Gone” is the first of a broader series that will be released on October 11 on Asylum Records. The package will include remixes to cuts by Clarence Clarity, Devault, and The Wild. These all continue a recent remix streak by Kraviz, which has also seen her providing her interpretation on pieces by Marie Davidson and Franz Ferdinand.
