Today as I was trolling through Soundcloud, I came across a remix of “The Things You Were” by Deas Vail off their Birds & Cages album. I have to say I was intrigued by the fact that it was titled as a Dubstep Remix, so I had to give it a listen.
Done by a producer named Campbell Jensen, from Auckland, New Zealand, the remix truly takes the best part of “The Things You Were.” Specifically that little guitar run that you just can’t get enough of when you listen to the original song. Jensen really takes it up a notch though by adding some nice break beat to it, and really making the track groove. It almost sounds more focused than the original without the extra bit of the song that almost sounds out of place.
By the time Jensen drops the vocals, the song really takes off to another place. Taking the beauty of the song, without focusing too much on any sort of drop or anything that would seem awkward. Just enough wobble to make your head bob.
Campbell Jensen, I have no clue who you are, but thanks for a great remix of a great song!
