SILS Exclusive: The Knocks, “Blackout (Samuel Remix)”

4 May

One of the SILS’s most popular songs in April was ‘Blackout’ by The Knocks. If the original caused the party and following blackout, then Samuel‘s remix is the hangover cure. His take on the track slows it down a bit, giving us a more relaxed vibe. Samuel flattens out the audio and adds his muted vocals, here are a cross between Cassettes Won’t Listen and Washed Out. His remix is equally addictive as the original.

No stranger in The Knocks world, Samuel worked with the production duo on his upcoming fall release, Trains To Wanderland, and provided the vocals¬†on the popular Ellie Goulding cover, ‘Starry Eyed‘ (also available for download).

You can and should follow both on Twitter (@TheKnockz and @SamuelSamuel)
