Midnight Music: Eastside – Ellie (Loyal x Don’t) Coucheron Remix [Indietronica Mashup]

I’m coming at you with some officially under-the-radar shit. Coucheron, the Shia LeBoeuf of the people (I swear, that’s his Twitter description) picked up a gorgeous mashup cover of Chris Brown’s Loyal Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t.” This flip the script mashup came to me on a tip from This Song is Sick and I’ve gotta thank Nick for this, as it’s a MUST listen. Not only are the Eastside my new indie underground band to watch (they’re so new they’ve got 2 digits of twitter followers, so let’s help change that). This soothing vocalist reminds me of Daughter in the way that they take songs and bend them to their will. This track takes the original work and adds a soft, groovy chill vibe that I am digging hugely. With the rise in Tropical House, I think we’re going to be hearing a lot more of this kind of sound even when we’re not hearing a 4/4 dance beat. Coucheron is a great example of what’s possible when you don’t cling to the dance beat 3rd rail of EDM and we all benefit from it. Check out the original below and definitely hit up both the original artist & the remixer on this one. Quality all over the place.
