In one of the more intriguing remix pairings you will see all day, American trap producer, DJ Baauer has remixes the new Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 lullaby from Jennifer Lawrence titled "Deep In The Meadow."
JLaw sings the lullaby in the movie during the closing credits and tugs on the heartstrings after a rollercoaster film. Now it gets flipped by Baauer who is known for his up-tempo tracks like "Harlem Shake," "Infinite Daps" or "Higher."
He creates stronger instrumental to "Deeper In The Meadow," with some chunky percussion that has a Latin influence in the chorus, while he also adds soft synths underneath Lawrence's airy vocals.
It may seem odd to hear Lawrence singing on her own solo track, but for the first Mockingjay soundtrack, she released a song "The Hanging Tree," which eventually went platinum and climbed to number 12 on the main charts, buoyed by the popularity of the film.
This remix will be included on the Mockingjay Part 2 soundtrack, which has been released, but does not feature the high profile names such as Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Charlie XCX and Lorde, who curated the whole LP, that were found on the Part 1 OST. Instead it contains the music that will actually be found in the film.
This could not have come at a better time for Baauer who is starting to put out new original music of his own for the first time in nearly a year and has been fastidiously working on a brand new album. Baauer recently released the single "GoGo!," and is continuing his new tour across the globe over the next month.
