Lady Gaga - Chromatica

he/him
Truth be told I'm not entirely sure how much I'll be using the Sine remix, and I'm a fan of most of the people involved. But like...I also can't not appreciate it for sheer ballsiness? The clips we've heard so far are honestly, truly reminding me a lot of late-aughts Skrillex right before he exploded in popularity and a little bit of the Goldfrapp remix of Judas pretentious gheighs don't @ me.

If some of you think this is noisy or too much you should just be thanking your lucky stars that GFOTY or Lil Mariko aren't involved nn

It just seems so steeped in irony that it's just not clicking for me especially with an embarrassingly earnest song like Sine. Even GFOTY would have been able to draw out some emotional aspect of the song rather than just making it as aggressive as possible dd.

(In fairness think I'm going to really fuck with the Lil Texas section.)

Oh no, I totally get that - I've had a difficult time connecting with a lot of Mood Killer's work for the last year or so for that very reason, and it took me a hot minute to fully wrap my head around what Dorian was trying to do with My Agenda. There are elements of it I enjoy (ironically, I think I like the parts we've heard with Chester's input more than anything else dd) and I still have mild PTSD from the early days of constant PC Music bashing on here so posts calling it "noise" just felt off to me nn and I think ultimately I'll like the sum of its parts.

Personally I'm the most excited for the Fun Tonight remix, for a lot of reasons. It is so ridiculously Brazilian, not just because of the instrumental, but because the very idea of taking an international song and remaking it in brega/forró/funk stylings in itself is a very Brazilian thing, something I grew up hearing on the radio and that kept going in the YouTube/meme era, so this is like... an officially sanctioned version of that kind of thing, kii. Add to that the fact that Pabllo is part of my generation, another queer kid who grew up looking up to Gaga as this distant goddess... it's all just very special to me.

All those Blessed Madonna memes are so tired and way-off base. That DJ mix was actually well thought-out, crafted to perfection sample usage, and was actually innovative. Twitter gays just couldn't wrap their brain around the ACTUAL nostalgia. This is just noise.

Complaining about generational differences in attitudes about music while then finger-wagging like an old man about hyperpop....

I think both are going to have moments of brilliance and shit. Just like the dozens of other pop remix albums like Gaga’s, B In The Mix, etc.
 
So I'm not gonna lie, I'm not much of a remix/club mix person, but all of these clips have me perched. Some of them sound more like amplified/alternate versions of the originals which I'm so excited about.
 
The only thing that would make this week better would be if Miss Pop of Haus Blud let we the people have a go at the stems. Hearing the dry Sine vox in the clip Mood Killer posted has me tweaking again

I mean, we did get the Free Woman stems as part of some GarageBand promo thing a month ago...

These are my favourite types of remixes, I can’t stand the ones where they just grab a generic “DJ beat” and shove a couple of lines from the song over it. I find them pointless.
