Electronica godfather Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim recently gave away a rollicking mash-up of Adele & Donna Summer on his Soundcloud for free. Retitled “I Feel Love Rollin’ In The Deep”, it was made for his DJ sets, and finally offered the answer to the question “What if Adele unleashed her inner Giorgio Moroder disco diva ?”. The mash-up surprisingly works, making it one strong addition to your NYE party playlists. Check it out below.
What could be better than a wailing diva? A wailing disco diva, of course.
Check out this amazing Moonlight Matters remix of Adele‘s current single “Set Fire To The Rain”, complete with funky bassline AND dramatic strings. Who knows her pipes can also own the dancefloor! The track is yours to keep for free below.

And while we’re at it, here’s an older, but equally amazing & over-the-top remix of “Rolling In The Deep” by Villa, whom Moonlight Matters (aka Seba) was previously a part of. This guy is becoming an expert in remixing Adele right.

Expect to see her name on the Mercury Prize Shortlist tomorrow. She is inescapable nowadays, isn’t she? 2011 is truly her year, and deservingly so.
My favorite rising UK act, Jamie Woon, went back to basics for his Live Lounge visit. With only a guitar, he performed his latest single “Lady Luck” and a cover of Adele‘s mega-hit “Someone Like You”. And what an incredible, soulful voice he has! It’s a fantastic cover, even if it kinda veered dangerously close to Jason Mraz territory. Woon’s debut, Mirrorwriting, drops April 18 in UK. No US release plans yet, but I seriously hope he will tour here this summer. If he learnt from his SXSW gigs and practiced more, his live show could be amazing. Stream/download the cover below. Grab an acoustic version & a cool remix of “Lady Luck” after the jump.
The amazing Adele recently stopped by Radio 1’s Live Lounge, and gave a smoky ballad rendition of Cheryl Cole’s “Promise This”. The little banter she gave before it further cemented my love for her as not only a vocalist, but also a fun, lively personality. Oh I do adore her. I mean, look at this priceless pic of her riding a bike and having a laugh. She’s such a tremendous talent (no pun intended)! Her new album “21” is already a top favorite of mine for 2011, and is worth the hype.
Adele’s not the only one having a go at a Cheryl Cole song. Last year, Vampire Weekend also put their own spin on “Fight For This Love”. Both covers are available for your listening pleasure below. Enjoy!
