Melanie Martinez’s darkly sugary Pity Party is quickly becoming one of the most remixed tracks of the moment. The latest twist on the bewitching pop song comes by way of East Coast producer Myles Travitz, who offers up his very first official label release with the official edit, out on Atlantic Records. He gives the track a gritty electro and future trap makeover that explodes with energetic fury. I’m looking forward to catching Melanie Martinez live at a sold out show in San Francisco this fall. It would be ace if someone dropped this remix after her set, so we could all go wild dancing away at our very own magnificent pity party. Snag Myles Travitz’s slamming remix on iTunes.

Melanie Martinez’s dark electronic pop is an entrapping blend of the twisted macabre and the sugary sweet, a concoction that targets my very heart. There’s hardly a Melanie song I haven’t been able to resist so far, including Pity Party, which even samples Leslie Gore classic It’s My Party. Canada’s XVII takes that shadowy glamour and transforms the electronic pop song into a whopping future bass and trap track brimming with grandeur and majestic stateliness. It’s intensely theatrical, a remix worthy of a contemporary trap version of Phantom Of The Opera, fitting of mysterious masks, lavish costumes, and mystical sets.
