Ginger Ninja and Eumig & Chinon come to us from Denmark with a lovely song that I’ve had on repeat since being introduced to it. Ginger Ninja is a four piece poppy indie-rock band signed to a deal on Sony Records, and Eumig & Chinon is Christian Kastbjerg, a french house producer on Coy Boy Records that started his current project back in 2008. To be honest, I don’t know a whole hell of a lot about Denmark, but if this wonderful track is any indication of the Danish spirit, I need to visit real soon.
‘Sunshine’ is just a super happy song, and this Eumig & Chinon remix amplifies that happy feeling and makes it a bit more dancey. The light, twangy guitar and vocals pair quite nicely with the electro punch that this remix adds. Soaring synths and the occasional sounds of chirping birds (awesome!) add a mystical element to the song that gives me that fantastic, uplifitng feeling. Kastbjerg puts a really nice spin on the original. Both start out pretty much the same, but after 5 seconds the remix goes into a sunny club jam while the original take a more indie rock path. I think this remix would go over real well in any beach-side club.
“There’s a fear making noise in the back of your head, but there’s no need to be afraid crawl back in my bed”
“Get in line for the sunshine”
Ginger Ninja reminds me a lot of some of the other indie electronic dance groups like Pony Pony Run Run and Jump Jump Dance Dance… a playful sound with catchy tunes that make you feel all warm and fuzzy. To get a better feel for how the original compares to this remix, here’s the video for the original track.
Eumig & Chinon did a great job on this remix, and he has some other choice work over on his soundcloud page that I suggest checking out. ‘Sunshine’ comes off of Ginger Ninja’s debut album Wicked Map, which is also very good and worth picking up.
