You might have thought Lana Del Rey's “West Coast” was perfect. That is, until deep house enigma Zhu remixed it. The way Lana’s sensual, somber voice drifts over sun-drenched guitar chords is both warming and altogether chilling; you may have thought it was flawless. Then the emerging producer injected it with an ultra-cool, bouncy groove that boasts its own sexiness in a whole different way. Zhu flips Lana’s melodic ode to the Californian shores into a bopping, after-hours primed remix that offers the best of both worlds.
Weaving in a dark disposition to an uncannily catchy arrangement of horns, vocal samples, and deep, cosmic synth work, Zhu allows Lana Del Rey’s signature sex appeal to thrive even further over this subtly bumping beat. Grounding Lana’s ethereally light voice with a multifaceted garage house treatment, Zhu delivers an impeccable remix effort with his rendition of “West Coast.”
