Gossip Hypnotize on Wankelmut Remix of 'Get a Job' – Song Premiere

German producer reinterprets Portland alt-poppers' club cut

November 19, 2012 9:00 AM ET

With Beth Ditto's unmistakable grace and attitude, Gossip make pop their own, and in this remix of A Joyful Noise track "Get a Job," the bass-heavy club cut gets a clattering reworking from German producer Wankelmut. Though the original drives forward with a pulsating, beating bass and huge thundering thumps, Wankelmut's remix inserts quick click-clacks and a funky low-end groove for a subtle and hypnotic take on the track. Both are big time booty shakers, but while the original slams hard, Wankelmut shakes down.

Wankelmut's remix of "Get A Job" will be on the forthcoming A Joyful Noise RMX EP.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
