“Rolling in the Deep (Villa Remix)” – Adele

Today’s post is a birthday dedication for Camila S. who requested I review Adele.  Of course, if I’m doing Adele, I’m doing it with a remix.  The first time I heard this song it got my attention, Adele’s voice has certainly matured.  But then I heard this remix and I was floored.  The bass is amped up, giving it a more funky feel compared to the original.  It was the intro to the chorus that got me- with a sudden drop, Adele comes storming in along with a heavy, pulsating beat.  The sample I’ve chosen is the second time we hear the chorus.  The kick drum is accentuated with the slightly vocoded “music” and “soul” again reinforcing the power behind Adele’s voice.  Just after the sample we’re given a soulful, boot-stomping solo only to jump right back into it. Villa does a great job of preserving the original song, keeping it still very much within Adele’s realm.  Overall a great song, but a better remix.
