Micky Green – Shoulda (Bloody Beetroots Remix)
Remember Micky Green? That Australian singer/model who relocated to Paris and randomly had a top ten hit or two in her adopted country?
Perhaps you never heard of her in the first place. Fair enough, since her coverage back home has been marginal at best.
Apparently she’s recently been getting mileage across Europe with the remix of her track ‘Shoulda’ by Italian electro duo Bloody Beetroots. It’s not hard to see why, since this couldn’t sound more ’2008′ if it tried (which I mean in a good way). Combining the best parts of Italo-Disco (a la Italians Do It Better) and French House (a la Justice), this remix takes Ms Green’s pop song and makes it a chopped up and pumping dancefloor stomp.
Micky Green is gearing up for a local release soon and the previously covered ‘Oh!’ is also undergoing some high profile remixing. Keep an ear out for those soon. Until then, just jump around to this one and pretend you’re in Europe – where they apparently recognise some good Australian music before Australians even get around to it.
