Fresh from co-presenting Eurovision’s Greatest Hits, Graham Norton premiered a new dance remix version of Electro Velvet’s song “Still in Love with You” on his BBC Radio 2 show. It’s taken the 1920’s-inspired electro swing song kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
The violins are still there, but the bass has been given a turbo boost. Most of the song lyrics have been cut, making it a largely instrumental track. The backing singers are still put to use with their frequent demands that “everybody dance”, while Alex and Bianca’s occasional vocal snippets have been given a robotic sound.
The combination of violins and dance beats makes the song vaguely reminiscent of the Rednex bluegrass techno sound of the ’90s. It’s a fun enough dance track, but we can’t help wonder if it’s stealing the thunder of the original song, which is pretty danceable in its original form.
