Bootlegs & covers

I’ve been looking into Ellie Goulding these couple of days now and I’m starting to be convinced. This starlet from London has a sweet voice for sure, however, I’m not that much into most of her originals.

What I found to be very good though is a cover that Ellie has made. At this point I must mention that the cover is produced by a very skillful guy from Philadelphia by the name of Xaphoon Jones. The track itself is a cover of a The Weeknd original “High for this”, a good listen on its own I might add.

To make things more complicated for you to follow, I’ve also got a really nice dubstep bootleg of the cover mentioned above (and playable below)! Check out the spins that OmegaDubstep has put on Ellie’s cover:

And the “original”:

Addicted to a certain kind of sadness

Most people have likely heard Gotye’s “Somebody that I used to know” by now. That’s probably because it’s a sticky one – and it works for me. Just loving the cruelty of it I suppose.

So it would seem logical that a dubstep remix would be a natural fit to highlight the turning points of the track. To bring extra depth to the cruelty. Hmmm, judge for yourself.

Here’s the original for comparison, if you like. Do leave link at the comments if you’ve got a better remix.
