Track Of The Day: Lana Del Rey – 'Video Games' (Jamie Woon remix)
When Soundcloud went down yesterday, traffic was to blame. That's fair enough, but we have another theory, Jamie Woon was uploading his remix of 'Video Games' by Lana Del Rey. Their systems just couldn't cope with that amount of combined hype.
Regardless of how you feel about either artist, this is a great remix. Woon has injected a serious amount of life into a song that, lets face it, starts strong but soon gets tiresome.
