Alex Newell & DJ Cassidy - Kill The Lights (with Nile Rodgers)

This was created especially for the HBO show Vinyl. The Disco-drenched song sounds straight out of the late 70s. Everything about the song from the fabulous vocals and the lush orchestral production are divine. Alex's vocal performance evokes traces of Donna Summer and Sylvester. DJ Cassidy and Nile Rodgers deliver a perfect thumping, layered production.

There are some additional remixes for the club release by Audien, Chuckie, Dimitri From Paris, and Yolanda Be Cool. The Dimitri From Paris remix is the best of the bunch as it is done in the style of those extended 12" mixes of the late 70s with certain elements played up and the whole thing just hits harder. The other versions are all variations of Electro House. Jess Glynne provides additional vocals on these remixes which complement Alex's vocals.
