A great remix by French house DJ and producer Cedric Gervais. I absolutely adore Lana Del Rey‘s voice, and Gervais’ spin on “Summertime Sadness,” a standout track from her debut album, is absolutely awe-inspiring. If the original is all calm before the storm, this remix is the thunder and rain. And when the heavens open, what are we to do but DANCE IN THE RAIN. While I still love the original, Gervais’ remix brings a luminous new light to it. Baby you’re the best.

Another week, another amazing show. If you’re in Ontario’s capital today, I urge you to head over to Yonge and Dundas Square, where the Mad Decent Block Party is raging even as we speak. Local heroes Zeds Dead will be wrapping things up later tonight, and I predict they’ll be shaking the concrete in such a manner as to have the walls of the nearby Eaton Center clinging on for dear life. It’s an extravaganza, amigos – and it’s FREE!!! Say no more.
Speaking of Zeds Dead, we start this week’s Sweets with the brand new EP the duo dropped earlier this week — a collaboration with Omar LinX and, as you’d expect, a classic. Elsewhere, Montreal duo Botnek have a heavy-duty remix on their hands and Alvin Risk takes Fun.‘s “We are Young,” plus a few other goodies. Onward!
