George Maple may be a pop vocalist, but she’s established herself as a regular collaborator in the world of dance music, making appearances on tracks produced by What So Not, Flume and DJ Snake. For her track “Sticks and Stones” with Goldlink, Maple has returned with a remix collection featuring new versions produced by Daktyl, Deetron and one courtesy of herself.
The remix collection for “Sticks and Stones” is brimming with diversity, with each new version expanding on the original and taking the song in a different direction. Deetron sets his remix to an old-school techno beat, layering Maple’s voice over syncopated synth stabs and rolling basslines. Daktyl, meanwhile, infuses some trap influence into his take, with blaring synths and huge hip hop beats. Lastly, the George Maple mix takes things in a much different direction, with deep chords and smoky R&B atmosphere.
Overall, the “Sticks and Stones” remix package presents three very distinct takes on the George Maple song, rejuvenating the original version and further cementing her as one of dance music’s best vocalists.
