British songstress Ellie Goulding wields one of pop's most distinct voices and, on this remix by White Sea, her track "Anything Could Happen" gets a new electric sheen. Layers of Goulding's voice are spliced to create rich harmonic melodies, and the track pummels forward with skittish percussion. The original feels warm and inviting, but this reworking sounds dark, powerful and ominous.

The original version of "Anything Could Happen" appears on Goulding's upcoming album, Halcyon, out October 9th. The album is available here for preorder.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
