Today just got better.

Recently Charlotte OC described her music—to Noisey UK—as "gospel soul house influenced music" which is proof positive that artists find it nigh on impossible to describe what they create. Which is fine, that's not their job. Charlotte's job is to compose and deliver beguiling torch tunes best consumed with a large glass of red wine, sporting some slightly smudged eyeliner. See the video for "Strange" (below) as evidence. She blends Bat for Lashes' cosmic mystic pop, Stevie Nicks' breathless vulnerability, and possesses the vocal chops to keep up with Adele. This is all to say that Charlotte OC is One. To. Watch. (Although you should really listen to her too. Watching her on mute is creepy and not to be encouraged.)
Above is the premiere of Justin Martin's remix of "Strange." Here the San Francisco beatmaker has morphed the molasses soul of her recent single into a glitchy yet still atmospherically downtempo rework featuring organic beats as much as canned cuts. And wait, is that a harp? Whatever, he's done a bang up job. Love it.
