With a slow-strutting synth and mournful angelic hums, Rosen manages to convert the young croonster's sing-songy discontent into something straight off of the Virgin Suicides soundtrack. Absolutely mesmerizing--don't miss out on this. MUUMUSE
Adds a moody, dark twist to Lilly's original that is truly compelling...Not only is Dr Rosen Rosen one of the country's premier remixers, he's also a savvy composer with a fine knack for melody. ARJAN WRITES
Unsurprisingly, the result is triumphant PRETTY MUCH AMAZING
Doctor Rosen Rosen... turns [It's Not me, It's You] into something creeping with sadness. But in a good way. TANKBOY
Doctor Rosen Rosen totally recreated “Fuck You”, with a different set of emotions and creativity which makes him stand out from other remixers. I think that I might actually like his remix more than the original track. MOSSIP
A must-have for Lily Allen fans REMIX GALAXY
The first joint he is releasing off of this project is his remix of Lily Allen's track, "Fuck You". And damnit, he did a great job! PIGEONS AND PLANES
I have a feeling this guy is going to go very very far, and i seriously cannot wait! This is dark alt pop at its best. FUTURE SILENCE
this remix takes out the circus-y feel of the original and isolates Lily Allen’s voice with more ambient harmonies. Better than the original SPACETOASTERS
I saw Lily Allen for the first time in 2006 while on tour in Iceland. We didn't actually meet face to face and I didn't even catch her name; my introduction was seeing her video for Smile in a crappy hotel room. A few days later I was strolling around a gigantic Virgin Record store in London, when I saw a poster of her and the name... Lily Allen. I snagged her debut record and went home to New York a fan.
Fast forward to 3 years later: Lily Allen is a bonefied pop-star and is releasing her second album "It's Not Me, It's You." I reach out to her US record label to see if they were commisioning any remixes... no dice. Lily was, however, releasing all of the parts to all of the songs on the album so anyone could remix them. Brilliant. I knew I had to remix the whole album.
One thing I really like about Lily Allen is her knack for pairing bouncy music with not-so-bouncy lyrics. My goal in remixing her entire record was to see what would happen if I placed Lily's voice and lyrics into new musical landscapes that were a complete departure from the original recordings. As most of the original album "It's Not Me, It's You" is upbeat (thanks to Greg Kurstin's awesome production) my remixed version "It's Not Me, It's Doctor Rosen Rosen" takes on a darker/dreamier tone. I mixed a lot of organic sounds (pianos, strings, glockenspiel, horns) with dreamy synths, deep basses, and big drums to create a totally new record. I produced, composed, and mixed all of the music you hear. The only original parts I used were Lily's vocal tracks.
I really enjoyed making this and I hope you enjoy listening.
