No Introduction Needed

When it comes to electronic pop remixes, Lana Del Rey's library of work is second to none. With notable offerings from Cedric Gervais, Kaskade, Sound Remedy, and even ETC! ETC! there wasn't a single festival stage in the last couple years where her records haven't been played. With the recent West Coast remixes from MK and Zhu, it was only a matter of time before more of her music received the deep treatment.

Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence (Disciples Remix) 

Better Than The Original

Disciples gives Ultraviolence a much-needed energy injection. While Lana's singing never fails to impress, the original track feels almost lifeless in comparison. Gone are the depressing twangs of strings and the slow beating drums that seem to weigh the track down, replaced with a melodic piano and lively percussions. The vocal edits are catchy and the song is literally resurrected from the dead. lanawall720x405 This is a remix that not only adds value to the original song, but arguably supersedes it in many ways. While I can better appreciate the source material now, I will definitely be playing the remix from here on out.
