Kiely Rich decided to take on one of my favorite recent tracks in “Dark Star” and make it a bit of a dance anthem, delving deep into the sound I loved from the original and adding some house and even a few flecks of guitar where needed.
I find the remix hard to categorize. While ultimately it succeeds greatly in turning the theme of “Dark Star” on it’s head, there’s still moments of melancholy that show through and it’s really up to the listener to determine whether that detracts from your summer fun. This Kiely Rich remix is rewarding, though – the longer you stick with it, the further out of it’s shell it comes until Jaymes Young’s style is totally transformed from shimmering and engrossing to pulsing dance.
It definitely works for me. Enjoy it below.
