In just under two weeks we’ve enjoyed two massive Ellie Goulding uploads. Two completely different sides of the dance – Dexcell’s rippling drum & bass remix and Seven Lion’s sparkling electro composition – they’re a neat reminder of how well her voice lends itself to electronic music.
In a forthcoming UKF interview with Seven Lions he tells us that “Ellie is so talented, her voice drips emotion and authenticity. She could sing you a song on Skype and it would sound incredible.”
Ellie’s never sung to us on Skype. But reflecting on her past work within electronic music, we reckon he’s bang on the money. Furthermore, her emotion and authenticity lends itself to so many genres – from dubstep to drum & bass via huge Calvin Harris chart-stompers.
It’s a public holiday over here in the UK. The summer is also showing some super-strong signs. Perfect time to explore her past work, then. Whatever scenario you have in place for today, let Ellie’s lush voice soundtrack it. In no particular order, here are 10 of our favourite Goulding moments so far…
