Carly Rae Jepsen – “Your Type (Skylar Spence Remix)”
Back when Skylar Spence was still going by Saint Pepsi, he released a great edit of “Call Me Maybe.” That one was a dramatic reworking, stretching it to a 7-minute free-form and pretty much doing everything under the sun with the melody. It must have attracted Carly Rae Jepsen and her team’s attention because he got tapped to do an official remix of “Your Type,” the next E•MO•TION single. This one is more of a traditional redub, subbing out the heavy synths for some slick and airy Prom King-style instrumentation. You really can’t fuck up this song — it’s like making pasta or something — and the Skylar Spence interpretation is a good one. Listen via Billboard below.
