Glassetonbury, Vol. 2: CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND

Read Time:2 Minute, 25 Second

After a Final Four round that saw three songs break the 100-vote threshold, we’ve arrived at our final matchup for this bracket. Toronto-based artist Luxe‘s song “Heartless” will be facing off against Australian DJ Spectoral‘s remix of Kathana‘s “DAISY LANE” in the Championship Round.

The winner will earn a featured interview on our home page, a live show hosted on Instagram Live by Glasse, and more!

Voting will close on Saturday, November 7th at 1:00 p.m. CST.



Let’s take a deeper look at our final matchup.

_______________

Heartless” – Luxe

defeated “James Crow” – Mobley in the Round of 32

defeated “Let Your Trouble Go” – Amelie Patterson in the Sweet 16

defeated “Trust Myself” – biz colletti in the Elite Eight

defeated “Undercover” – Gabrielle Current in the Final Four

When I listen to “Heartless,” I find it hard to put in a box. Is it a hip-hop bop with some emo tendencies, or a nu-metal headbanger with some trap influence and modern production?

Yes.

It’s a genuine, evenly-mixed blend of sounds that fuses together in a way fans of Linkin Park might flock to. It has the kind of pumping, heavy energy that would make it a great soundtrack for lifting weights or throwing some punches at a heavy bag. Lyrically, Luxe reflects on how he “lives life heartless” because he finds it “better than (living) broken-hearted.”

Musically, it features powerful guitars, tight 808s, rock-solid drums, melodic verses, and even a string breakdown in the second verse.

Luxe released “Heartless” as a single on September 25, 2020.

vs.

DAISY LANE – Spectoral Remix” – Kathana x Spectoral

defeated “Laundry” – NUUXS in the Round of 32

defeated “Love OD” – Team in the Sweet 16

defeated “Insatiable” – Xandor x Katie DiCicco in the Elite Eight

defeated “Energy” – The Gyrating Hips x Jenni Rudolph x Hazansky in the Final Four

To understand the impact of Spectoral’s contributions to the remix of Kathana’s “Daisy Lane,” it’s important to have a feel for the original version. “Daisy Lane” originally released as a dancy, groovy pop track about living it up in the summertime.

If the original version is a summery jam, Spectoral’s remix is a November midnight drive down the interstate. A step slower and significantly stripped-back, it opens up a ton of space that gets filled with ambient electronic effects, well-textured vocals, and wide, arpeggiated synths. It’s been described as “a nimble blend of ultramodern pop laced with trip-hop and wavy electronica.”

It starts to pick up around the 1:30 mark before breaking open at 2:13 and finishing with a vibey breakdown.

The Spectoral remix was released on September 17, 2020.
