Sylvia Gordon’s solo project, Betty Black, sees the southern gothic chanteuse bringing to life haunting melodies and romantic lyrics that are intentionally rough around the edges and ripe for remix experimentation. Part 2 of her Too Much To Resist: Slow Dance EP is chock full of alternative takes on “Spring Blossoms”, “Low Tide Lullaby” and “Came Home Cryin’” featuring remixes by Killahurtz, Starkey, Don Summer, Hess Is More, Tembo Salty & Black and Sylvia’s own Romeo treatment. Check out the first set of Slow Dance remixes here.
