Denai Moore – “The Lake (Fantastic Mr Fox Remix)”

Fantastic Mr Fox is an excellent children’s story by Roald Dahl. Fantastic Mr Fox is also a really excellent stop-motion animated Wes Anderson film starring George Clooney and Meryl Streep, based on the aforementioned short story. Finally, Fantastic Mr Fox is the name of a British producer who I’ve been aware of since 2010, someone who’s been doing exciting things within house/techno/bass music and bringing something new to his sound with each release.

London singer Denai Moore’s mournful, acoustic song “The Lake” does not seem the obvious candidate for a danceable makeover, but Fantastic Mr Fox does a brilliant job of beefing up Moore’s vocals, keeping the focus on them throughout, even as martial drums and steady bass join the fray. Listen to the impressive remix below.
