Ella Fitzgerald, The Supremes remixed on ‘Lofi Holiday Mixtape, Vol. 2’
The second edition of the setting in tone Lofi Holiday Mix arrived with refreshing and mesmerizing versions of the season classics from Ella Fitzgerald, temptations, The Supremes, Chet Boulanger, Kay Starr and Ferrante & Teicher. The collection of 7 tracks is now available through Universal Music.
This year’s edition, Lofi Holiday Mixtape Vol. 2, is shaped by producers around the world. UK-based producer Mondo Loops slows down the tempo on Kay Starr’s “(Everybody’s Waiting For) The Man With The Bag” and bolsters the track with newly recorded instrumentals for a fresh and ethereal sound.
There’s also an appearance from SpoonBeats, a member of a Mexico-based Lofi collective. He approaches “My Favorite Things” by the Supremes with an unexpected approach, transforming the original orchestral strings into a rhythmic instrumental moment. âWhite Christmas,â another choice from The Supremes, received a remix from Los Angeles producer L. Dre. Her rendition of the song, more hypnotic in its sound, adds a kick to the speed of the band’s vocals and layers them to a pulsating beat.
LOUALLDAY, also from Los Angeles, supports most of the Lofi Holiday Mixtape, Vol. 2, with four remixes including “Silent Night” by The Temptations, “O Come All Ye Faithful” by Ella Fitzgerald, “Winter Wonderland” by Chat Baker and “Ave Maria” by Ferrante & Teicher. On each, the producer mixes instrumental loops, choppy vocals and hip-hop beats to transform classic holiday tracks into a striking new sound combination.
