Just yesterday, Amy Winehouse would’ve turned thirty two. Yes, it was the tragic artist’s birthday. Instead, as we all know, she’s joined the legendary 27 club. British electronic act Digital Farm Animals offers up a proper tribute, intentional or coincidental, via an immensely breathtaking remix of Ms. Winehouse’s Stronger Than Me. In fact, this is the ONLY official remix of a song approved by her family since her passing. It’s a near gutwrenching experience, taking into account the lyrics of the song, Amy’s striking vocals, and the melancholia tinged, reflective atmosphere of the track. Digital Farm Animals’ expert adaptation is an ambient electronica, melodic trip hop, and entrancing breakbeat work of art. This leaves me at one of those special music moments where I can’t help but utter “magic”.
