Published Mar 15, 2011Pop icon Lady Gaga's latest single, "Born This Way", has dominated everyone's eardrums for the last couple of weeks, but considering how much we've heard it over the airwaves or blasted in the clubs, it feels as if the track's been around forever. Twin Shadow's deft remix makes us feel that way even more, if only because of his retro-tinged reworking of the tune.
While the original warps by on four-on-the-floor drum machines and Euroclub synths, Twin Shadow dials the intensity down just a tad, but manages to juice up its melodious moments with wriggly funk bass lines, '80s-style electro synths and fluttery six-string strums. Put together with Gaga's passionate, Madonna-by-way-of-the-churchyard gospel flow, the tune carries out like Prince's Revolution knocking out a kickin' cover of "Express Yourself." If you haven't already, now is the time to bow down at the altar of Gaga.
Listen to the rapturous track here.
