Just like “Summertime Sadness,” it seems that no matter what version I hear of this song it automatically captivates me. I would say that Ellie Goulding is one of my guilty pleasures but there is absolutely no shame in loving everything Ellie.
This remix of “Burn” by Gryffin is no different.
New York based producer Dan Griffith, aka Gryffin, throws down a nifty little deep house infused spin on this classic that begins by a guitar backed wave reminiscent of “The Intro” by The XX. As Ellie’s vocals build to the climax they drop in to the chorus as guitar riffs continue to co-exist with the signature deep house snare and bass.
Definitely one of my favorite deep house remixes that I have heard in a while.
