Katy Perry ‘Birthday’ (Holy Ghost Remix)
If you are out there somewhere dying to find a thumper for your respective house parties, then look no further. The god of house music has blessed this remix with deep bass lines and searing synth work. The elements of pop that Katy Perry is so well known for still remains, but with a touch of funk and disco, ‘Birthday’ is one for those of us who enjoy getting down.
Keeping the vocals from Perry to a minimum (thank you) and the keys high pitched, this remix really delves deep into the disco scene and morphs the original’s lyrics into a robotically fun element. Expect to hear this mix played at your local dives on the regular, Holy Ghost! have delivered the best sort of birthday present for DJs everywhere.
Let us all celebrate the delightful meshing of delicate synth, brash bass, and just downright smooth vibes that this track has to bring. The climax of the track leaves you feeling sweaty and thankful that Holy Ghost! have the balls to bring this pop princess’ back from the bubblegum coloured depths of the underworld.
