Listen: Sam Smith – Lay Me Down (Todd Edwards Dub Mix) [Best Fit Exclusive]

25 March 2013, 12:54 | Written by George O'Brien

Starring on a track which has now enjoyed nigh on 11 and a half million views is bound to stand you in good stead, but this London via Cambridge singer is fast making a name for himself away from the increasing power of Disclosure.

Sam Smith’s soulful vocal is genuinely seen-to-be-believed impressive and, alongside assured song-writing knack, he lends himself very nicely to reworkings. The seductive melancholy of ‘Lay Me Down’ has been transformed into a clicking, clapping club hit by prolific reworker Todd Edwards. Utilising the smoothness of Smith’s voice and creating a intuitively choppy melody, the LA producer has created an almost stand-alone mix. With its classic synth-heavy chord progressions and deep, almost EDM bass, the track would feel very comfortable in house-heavy clubs around the world.
