So i'm guessing that by the end of 2010 everyone had heard Cooler Than Me by Mike Posner. I loved the track and certainly found it a refreshing change to have in the charts. Unfortunately i didn't listen to Mike's album or researh into his other songs and covers...or i would have discovered these two beautys:
Dang. I can't actually stop listening to the synth beats he has incorporated into his covers of these two, quite frankly, very hard to cover songs. Putting Mike's techno, light dubstep spin into each i just love his style. Mr Posner's soft voice (and hot accent, hello!) in Halo with the changing of the lyrics to give his version of the song a different message makes it original. Whereas with The Scientist cover i adore how the beat takes the main focus, so complex and intricate but the softness towards the beginning and end makes the music rather relaxing, in a slightly odd way. I also watched how he produced Halo on his Youtube channel here and i was completely fascinated by the creation...i gotta find me some equipment.
