Kat Krazy Remixes The Good Natured's New Single '5-HT' [Interview]


Leave it up to Kat Krazy to serve up a remix of The Good Natured's terrific new single "5 HT" that properly maintains the song's mildly twisted undertones but adds a potent dancefloor punch to original production. The British remixer extraordinaire flips the song up its head by incorporating hyper-melodic, raving synth stabs and a bumping new groove that takes the song to a whole new level of alt-pop greatness.

Kat Krazy's revamp of "5-HT" was directly inspired by the unusual, yet meaningful title of the song. "I looked into the title name 5-HT (scanning through good old Wiki) to find out the that it is serotonin," Kat Krazy (aka Ben Preston) writes me. "It's a neurotransmitter that also plays a role in our anxiety.This was great inspiration for the remix."

He explains, "I wanted to keep the verses complex and chunky, then build in a euphoric breakdown/bridge with the chorus Vocals to reflect what I feel when I think of 5-HT," he adds. "The original vocal was very different to many I'd worked with before and Sarah Mcintosh just delivers such a lush sound and tone here." And we couldn't agree more. Make sure to also check out Kat's recent remixes for Misha B, Labrinth and Marina & The Diamonds.

On a related Good Natured note, make sure to also check out the group's new Christmas single, "Christmas Wrapping" that was produced by Martin "Cherry Chery Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum. It's a cover of The Waitress' original that the British trio recorded together with Cherrytree Records artist Colette Carr. Listen to it here. (The Good Natured "5-HT" will be released in the U.K. early next year.)
