#songoftheday / REVIEW: Petite Meller – “Backpack (Marlin Remix)” (PROBABLY NSFW)

Today’s song of the day is a hot — and downright infectious– remix of Petite Meller’s charming song “Backpack” by the French DJ known as Marlin.  Although this remix packs a hard beat like the original version of the song, said beat isn’t quite as boisterous.  It’s actually a longer, jumbo beat but it’s just not so loud in the mix.  What is loud in the mix is some funky bass guitar, which plays along with some equally funky synthesized bass.  Suffice to say the result is a very funky, somewhat retro-sounding remix that’s so damn contagious it rivals the original version.  And, as a bonus, this remix has its own original video and, boy, is it sure to be controversial, as it finds Petite in Lolita mode, not looking a day over 14 and wearing lots of make up and swimsuits and such, playing with bubbles, smoking, lying in bed, etc.  Meanwhile, that is juxtaposed with little girls playing hopscotch as well as doing things they should not be doing like smoking.

When we interviewed Petite recently she made this comment about her videos: “I think my videos are my diary, in the sense they represent my unconscious libidinal dream through moving postcards.”  So, there you have it.  Read our full interview with Petite here: https://loveispop.com/interviews/exclusive-interview-petite-meller/

The “Backpack” single, which includes the Marlin remix, will be out on April 28th via Night Beach Records, available digitally and on 7″ vinyl.  Order it here: http://nightbeachrecords.bigcartel.com/products
