Choon Choosday: The Streets – Blinded By The Light (Nero Dubstep Remix)

14 October, 2014

Mike Skinner (aka The Streets) is a great talent. Much like Jarvis Cocker and to some degree Blur, he reflects sections of british society in his music and his lyrics, meaning that much of his appeal is the recognition, in much the same way that comedians whose material is observational are popular. Blinded by the Light is I think my favourite track by The Streets because of the lyrics describing a night out, but also because of the wonderful synth stab which seem to be in some sort of 11/8 time signature that complements the chilled nature of the tune but is enough out of kilter to give it a nervy edge.

This is the remix by dubstep / dnb royalty Nero. The lyrics of the verses are sacrificed, which is a loss, but what the track gains is an additional layer of bass and an extra drum track. Added depth, added quality.




Oh okay then, since you asked nicely, here’s the original. That’s a choon too…

  1. I do like the Streets not a big fan of this song but I think it is because it makes me think of Danny Dyer
