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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
