Track of the Day: “The Deer & The Wolf (Role Reversal)” – Sophie Ellis-Bextor
Many fans were surprised when Sophie Ellis-Bextor ditched her trademark pop for a softer acoustic sound. Wanderlust started Sophie’s year off with a laid back album and to finish the year off the pop star is re-releasing her album with a bonus remix album entitled Wandermix. Roy Kerr aka Freelance Hellraiser remixed several songs including the latest single, “The Deer & The Wolf,” to start the project off. The Wandermix version of “The Deer” is a house track dubbed “Role Reversal” with Sophie taking the lead and a male vocalist finishing off the track just before the pop star’s voice is chopped and looped.
Sophie teased fans by posting the remix album cover and assuring fans that she “wouldn’t leave dance music behind for good.” With Kerr remixing five songs as a continuous mix, it’ll be a treat to hear how each song turns out. Judging by the first remix (and hopefully the rest) you can find me swaying back and forth to this entire album.
