The Verve Remixed series turns its attention to the ladies in its next iteration, featuring an all-women lineup for its upcoming collection Verve Remixed: The First Ladies. Here, Kaskade puts a celestial touch on Astrud Gilberto's recording of "Fly Me to the Moon." The DJ-producer wraps Gilberto's narcotic vocals over deep, cosmic grooves that erupt into a supernova of synths.

I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
