Before I start this post I’ve got to tell you this ain’t about the artist, it’s about the remixes. Actually it’s about the remixERS and how I will never listen to anything that one of them will ever produce ever again (I will try to keep this post drama free).
We’ve written recently how we really thought that Frankmusik was an interesting character in music and how we though he had lots of potential that never managed to shine outside his EP ‘Three Little Words’. The combo of being a bit unstable with a love for nudity and a pop heart does sound really promising - as Kanye proves - but in this case, it was either corrupted by some evil outside problem, or the problem is inside of us. Maybe we were blinded by the hype surrounding a brilliant first single.
But the fact is, that I can’t remember hearing something as horrendous as this Frankmusik remix for Natalia Kills and I’m not even talking about the out of sync clap that will hunt you through out the whole remix. I’m talking about something so cheesy and so offensive that it makes Stereo Love sound like Sigur Rós. A horrible europop song (overuse of auto-tune and echo included) gone hard rave.
And remember when I said this post wasn’t about how bad Natalia Kills actually is? Because Penguin Prison got the same job (yes, this is job, I don’t think anybody involved actually wanted to be part of this remix package) and managed to not make himself look bad. In fact, if the vocals from the original didn’t have so many awful effects, it might actually be a good, chilled pop remix.
As an adios, I will offer you Frankmusik's latest single which can be heard in the video below. It totally proves our point.
May you take good care of your cutesy bottom.
