Makina has really done a number on these familiar tracks, giving them a refreshing cumbia makeover. His remix of Lana del Rey’s Video Games is (in my opinion) the stand-out edit on this release, with the drums playing subtly with Lana’s sultry vocals. Now, when I looked at the tracklist and saw that I’d have to listen to yet another remix of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” I cringed. Makina sent it over to Gotye and they responded with ‘it’s lovely, smooth vibes and a very sweet interpretation of the parts of my track” and I couldn’t agree more. It only took a few seconds before my apprehensions were laid to rest.
You can get this whole release in 320, FLAC, WAV, or whatever other format you wish completely free through Makina’s Bandcamp.
