Club Queen: Katy Perry Drops Epic “Small Talk” Remix Package
The fact that Katy Perry’s “Small Talk” isn’t currently gracing the top 10 with its presence is one of life’s mysteries. It’s a perfect pop song that conveys a near-universal experience with heart and hooks. Happily, the slept-on single is still getting a push via an upcoming 12″ vinyl release for Record Store Day and a new remix package. As usual, the “Never Really Over” hitmaker comes through with a neatly curated collection of bops from high-profile artist/producers like Lost Kings, Sofi Tukker and White Panda.
While all of the remixes cater to Katy’s pop-loving demographic, there is still something for everyone. LA-based duo Lost Kings deliver a club-ready overhaul, while Sofi Tukker takes the song in a slightly weirder direction (as they tend to do). White Panda, on the other hand, keeps it cute and cheerful on his version. It almost feels like a throwback to the big-room remixes of the late ’00s, which is a big compliment. You can stream all three remixes below.
