Who doesn’t love a little Katy Perry? That’s a joke. Of course everyone does. This took a little getting used to for me; at first, I couldn’t quite make the dubstep sounds and Katy Perry’s voice fit together. Now, I recognize how truly phenomenal this remix is. The original song, “E.T.,” is futuristic – it has more electronic tones, deeper bass drops, and synthesized beats. Keep that in mind when you listen to AFSHeeN’s remix. It capitalizes on all these futuristic-intended sounds to create a fast-paced, bright dubstep that complements Katy Perry’s voice. There have been some seriously failed remixes of “E.T.” My personal favorite fail is the officially released remix featuring Kanye West. I’ll never understand what about cutting out Katy Perry’s introduction and adding two randomly placed 20-second rap verses from Kanye West makes the song a remix. However, AFSHeeN completely trashes Kanye West’s remix and proves it is possible to successfully remix a song. Shocker! If dubstep is your thing, you’ll enjoy this. If not, stick to the “E.T.” version on Teenage Dream.
If you like this remix, keep reading because there’s more AFSHeeN where that came from. We still need to discuss AFSHeeN’s new song from the Nightmares in Paradise EP, “Paradise.”
