16 year old Lorde is taking the world by storm. Selling out her debut shows recently in New York and Los Angeles and selling them out again in massive venues in major cities this fall, the young singer/songwriter seems to be a prodigy of sorts, and everyone seems to get it. Hailing from New Zealand, Lorde will be releasing her debut album, Pure Heroine, this September, which is expected to top charts around the globe after she became the first solo female singer in 17 years to top Billboard’s Alternative chart. Crazy, right? Well, in honor of her adding more dates to her insanely popular tour upcoming, we wanted to showcase a pair of remixes of her hit track “Royals” that are not as good as the original, but very good nonetheless.

The first is from GDD™ homie, Jean Raw, who keeps an uplifting vibe — screaming for fun, daytime play.

The second is from UTRB (Until the Ribbon Breaks), who will be performing as a live band for all 8 dates of Lorde’s upcoming tour as direct support. This one is more of a reinterpretation than a remix, or as UTRB put it — a “reimagination.” Very pleasant and well put together.

This remix from John is a must have. It lifts the relatively soft original to another level; readying it for the main stage. Get it below. √+ Continue Reading
