La Roux: 'Let Me Down Gently (Prins Thomas Diskomiks)'
After snatching a Grammy for best electronic/dance album with her debut self-titled full-length, La Roux is now getting ready for the launch of her new release, Trouble in Paradise, which will come out in early July. With a keen eye for quality dance music, the british synth-pop artist invited Scandinavian disco extraordinaire Prins Thomas to re-work her first hype single, 'Let Me Down Gently.' Thomas transforms the electronic ballad into a lush and sophisticated slow-disco record, keeping the original melancholy while adding his signature balearic bass lines and ethereal, acoustic elements. The perfect soundtrack for late summer afternoons.
