The three friends known as Little Daylight, who peppered 2012 with some of the year’s most infectious remixes, have finally stepped to the fore. Today Little Daylight has debuted their first original song, “Overdose”, alongside its music video.
Little Daylight took some of 2012’s best pop songs and infused them with pulsing beats and a tribal flair. The trio has created official remixes for Passion Pit, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Mowgli’s, Temper Trap, St. Lucia, and The Freelance Whales, with more to come. Listen to all of Little Daylight’s remixes now.
Little Daylight premieres their live show at this year’s SXSW Music Festival.
:: PRAISE FOR LITTLE DAYLIGHT’S REMIXES ::
“Shiny happy people Freelance Whales are so darn joyous in this here Little Daylight electro-pop refit of “Spitting Image” that our critical snark-o-meters have totally shut down. Nothing but compliments from us on this ice cream sundae remix, topped with rainbow duets, handclapping stomps, shimmy pop harmonies and buoyant synths.” -RCRD LBL
“Oh lordy lord, if only the new Edward Sharpe sounded more like this song! Little Daylight’s remix of “Man On Fire” is absolutely fantastic, taking the original to a whole new and improved level. To be fair, Edward Sharpe’s camp clearly recognizes the quality here — they’ve released the track officially. Hope you enjoy the listen!” -Indie Shuffle
“Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros share this excellent remix of “Man on Fire,” the lead single from their recently released sophomore outing Here. Little Daylight take the agreeable folk-pop ditty and elevate it to an effervescent Florence + The Machine-like choral. It’s always so very satisfying when a remix outshines the source material on an every level (and we ain’t just talking about on the dance floor). ” -Pretty Much Amazing
“Little Daylight had the honor of reimagining the tune and added both a tribal feel with pounding percussion and a swoaring choral track to fill out the sound. As most remixes, this version is a bit more upbeat and dance worthy, but moreso, it’s a full, majestic sound.” -Prefix Magazine
