With fewer hip-hop, pop or rock recordings making a mark this year, electronic music has consistently dominated 2018 in terms of both aesthetic boldness and contemporary relevance. After the release of her pop-rock EP, “Sexy N’ Domesticated”, singer-songwriter Brooke Josephson decided to take her charismatic lyricism and infectious melodies a step further. She teamed up with house producer Rocky G to create the remix of her “Mr. Fix It” single. The popular electronic music producer known for her unique style, inspired by a strong melodic core, took her personal blueprint and developed in it a way that is as adventurous as it is brimming with surprising mainstream appeal. It’s the kind of release that can grab the attention of someone who thinks they don’t like electronic music while still keeping both Brooke Josephson’s pop-rock fans and Rocky G’s underground club devotees happy.
Perhaps it’s the very feminine personality of the song, its smoothness and sense of empowerment, which makes it so appealing, but it demonstrates that the electro club sound doesn’t have to feel cold or alienating. The track’s gorgeous percussive build and its delicious mid-range wooze and flutter will captivate many. It marches purposefully ahead amidst banging drums, and soaring vocals, before breaking down, building up again, and eventually running off into the distance, seething with determination.
The “Mr. Fix It” remix demonstrates most clearly how far Brooke Josephson and Rocky G can extend their sphere of artistic influence. Artists like these, who relentlessly push forward are the most precious we have. The song is spectacular, showing off Brooke’s captivating vocal range and voice, as well as mining its rhythmic core.
Brooke can maneuver her voice like few others making it a gorgeous instrument, and a perfect ally for Rocky G’s sirens, synths and effects that weave their sonic hallmarks into something that is strikingly pop and epically dance.
The electro house remix dropped in all digital stores and online streaming platforms on November 16, 2018. To excite fans for the new track, Brooke also dropped her invigorating music video one week prior to the single release. Ultimately, “Mr. Fix It” will cement Brooke Josephson’s place in our current EDM soundscape. It is destined to further define her personal brand and carve out a fresh niche in a field dominated by gigantic, stadium-sized personalities.
