 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Charlotte OC is the new talent that seems to have capture the imagination of many electro pop fans worldwide and her single Darkest Hour seems to be on the rise with streams and YouTube views. While the original is deep melancholic electronic balad with slow groove, deep bass, organic elements, melancholic pianos, cinematic strings and ace performance of the deep and meaningful lyrics about the temptations that we have to face during the Darkest Hour. Her tone resembles Lana Del Ray that seems to be very prominent amongst many singers who attempt to represent a more eclectic approach in their career. The remixes are awesome with Apexape adding tough dark basslines, bouncy meaty punchy drums, vocal snippets, little synthy hooks strong enough to create havoc on the dancefloor and keep you hooked while you bounce around. For me the finest version comes from the hands of the beloved Bristol based Way Out West. Their tripping out floating remix is absolutely magical 7 plus minutes of deep driving haunting basslines, rolling tribal drums, warm orchestral strings and relaxing synths, awesome piano chords and the mysterious and very tempting vocals that will cast a spell on you. Dreamy, spacey, moody, thoughtful and eclectic version that deserves to get many plays. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
