La Roux – ‘In for the Kill (Lifelike Remix)’

CS1409373-02A-BIG

I’m pretty apathetic to the original ‘In for the Kill’. I remember at the time I was surprised that the previous single, ‘Quicksand’, didn’t get the same degree of success. I was also pretty apathetic to the Skream remix that was HUGE at the time. Not bad, just… not quite for me.

I think I’ve finally found the incarnation of ‘In for the Kill’ that I can appreciate. The Lifelike remix somehow works despite the vocals and instrumental being quite disconnected. I really like how the vocals are much less processed here than in the original. This is especially effective in the breakdown which sounds far more emotional than the original.
