Today’s Electric Women took a path that becomes a more and more common phenomenon in the modern music industry, but which (thankfully) is still a rarity in electronic music. 20-year old Melanie Martinez’ first dip into fame and appearance in popular media was her participation in the third season of American TV-Show ‘The Voice’. She was eliminated after reaching the Top 6, but still managed to build upon her newly found popularity.
Treasure Fingers just released a remix of the lead single ‘Dollhouse’ from her debut EP with the same name. In his hands it has become a fine house / garage song that perfectly compliments Melanie’s vocals.
One of my favorites releases from last year has taken one of her most memorable performances on The Voice, the cover of Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ as a base. The rework by Cestladore, which he simply calls ‘Melanie’, puts a whole different spin on that song again. It’s one of the best trap tunes I’ve heard yet. So good that it really might be post-trap already, like Cestladore himself tagged it on Soundcloud.
It seems like Melanie Martinez is becoming a producers’ favorite to remix and it’s definitely worth the effort, if one takes these two tunes as any kind of benchmark for it.
Genre: Garage / Trap
