Track of the Week: I Put a Spell on You

This week’s track is I Put a Spell on You by Nina Simone, mixed by MiM0SA. There’s so much to say, yet so little. I think the best way to approach this song is historically. Originally recording by Screamin’ Jay Hawkin in 1956, then covered by various people over the years in various styles. From Nina Simone in 1965, to  CCR in 1968, to the first dance versions by Sonique in 2000. This week’s track is a 2010 remix of Nina Simone’s take, mixing Simone’s classic vocals and haunting intro with banging dubstep breaks. It’s worth taking a run through all the covers of the song, they’re all so different and specific.
