When I first caught Milwaukkee on Amtrac’s remix, I thought they were some act associate with Bon Iver & that Midwest folk scene. Not only are they not from around there (or even this country), but they’re on a blog’s label I frequent, LessThan3.
Both Amtrac’s remix & the original ‘Alone’ take what sounds like Ellie Goulding’s voice and mixes her in two separate ways. The original went for a more uptempo, disco vibe, where Amtrac went with some hybrid of hypnotic soul. Either way you like it, both succeed separately (though Amtrac is still slightly ahead).
