While we’re on the subject of Ellie Goulding’s “Tessellate,” here’s a reverberatory dancefloor-ready remix of the Alt-J cover from London producer Clancy. While some of the original’s seductive nature is forgone, you won’t hear me complaining about the retro house groove that replaces it.
Ellie Goulding – Tessellate (Clancy Remix)
If you thought Ellie Goulding‘s “Tessellate” cover was sexy enough as is, wait until you press play on the sultry new black-and-white music video. The Paris-shot clip was directed by Ben Newbury, and features Ellie, Ellie and more Ellie, who at times, is wearing nothing but lingerie and a trench coat. And here I was thinking I couldn’t have a bigger crush on this girl…
My girl slash dream wife Ellie Goulding just delivered one of those “stop everything and listen” covers of hers with a stripped down take on Alt-J’s “Tessellate.” Like her rendition of The Weeknd’s “High For This,” this one comes complete with minimally blissful production from Xaphoon Jones, who also throws in a jazzy sax solo that further defines the overall soft, smooth and soulful vibe. Pure sex.

If you feel like you’ve heard “You Don’t Know” before, it’s probably because you have. Flinch and Ellie Goulding collaborated on this melodic dubstep monster back in 2012, but the full studio version is just now seeing the light of day. Thissongissick came through with a free download, but you can expect “You Don’t Know” to get a big joint release on SMOG, Mad Decent, OWSLA and Trouble&Bass later in June.
One of the standouts off Ellie Goulding‘s Halcyon remix album comes by way of Louisville’s Amtrac, who took “Without Your Love” and turned it into a fast-paced house burner. The vocal editing really makes this one, laying down a bed of strung out, echoing textures underneath samples of Ellie’s unedited voice to make for a really unique blend. After about the 3rd second, it’ll be practically impossible not to start moving.
