Our friend Monsieur Adi has had his remix of Beyonce‘s “Grown Woman” locked away for what feels like a lifetime now, and today he’s finally set it free via Kick Kick Snare.
Adi, busy working on a new single with the luscious A*M*E and producing tracks for Seal‘s upcoming album (!!!) has been a favorite of ours since his very first remix years ago. “Grown Woman” is hands down our favorite remix of his so far, he keeps gettin’ bettter with each one. That ending – hypnotic and somethin’ fierce! Continue reading →
Hot off the heels of Beyonce‘s Super Bowl performance last night, she announced the start of The Mrs. Carter Show via Priority TV in a lovely commercial directed by Jonas Akerlund. Watch below and revist the halftime performance right here.
Beyonce took the stage at Super Bowl XLVII tonight and her show featured a welcome reunion with Destiny’s Child! Watch the performance below! Review coming shortly. B tore through a set of classics including ‘Love on Top’ ‘Crazy In Love’ ‘End Of Time,’ and ‘Baby Boy’ before Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland joined her for ‘Bootylicious’ ‘Independent Women’ and ‘Single Ladies.’ The show ended with a touching and flawless solo performance of ‘Halo.’
Uh, now this is a rework of a classic. California’s Carling Ruse turns Destiny’s Child staple ‘Cater 2 U’ into a twinkling, even smoother r&b affair. Listen below, you’ll not be disappointed! Her original material is equally if not more fantastic, check it out here.
Monsieur Adi strikes again, this time with a stunning rework of Beyonce‘s End Of Time. He had a great time making the remix, weaving B’s diva vocals within his signature style…
It was really interesting working with a huge powerful voice like Beyoncé’s as I like to subdue things a lot. There were a lot of vocals to work with allowing me to cut things a lot and let her voice shine in the more melodic parts. I like the contrast between melody and noise. And I wanted to make something that would make you move. Beyoncé is really great ! Modern and fresh and an absolute beast.
This may just be my second favorite Adi remix, with his take on Madonna‘s Erotica coming in at #1. In other Adi news, the Fire Fire Fire EP is out now in honor of his late mother’s birthday. Requiem was written in her honor.
