Boomkat Product Review:
Bumper crop of remixes for xx guitarist and vocalist Romy Madley Croft's debut solo single 'Lifetime', with a standout from the unstoppable Anz.
It's taken a while for xx guitarist and vocalist Romy Madley Croft to kick off her solo career, but she puts a foot forward with 'Lifetime', an electro pop earworm that reminds fondly of The Knife or Robyn. Of course, the Anz remix is the one for us here: the molten hot producer re-tools Romy's original with heart-pumping 4 Hero-esque bass wobbles and chunky 12-bit amen breaks, sending us into another dimension entirely.
Elsewhere, Jayda G goes with a slick, dubbed-out house edit, Planningtorock pushes the electro elements into overdrive with her 'Let It Happen' remix and HAAi expands on the trancey euphoria with a sunny version that makes Chicane's 'Offshore' sound like Xenakis. Remember Ibiza?
