Kansas City's SSION (aka Cody Critcheloe) had one of the pop songs of the entire year with "My Love Grows In The Dark," an artful ode to a one night stand. Even if it never made it onto Top 40 radio, the song was so perfect we wish Madonna had heard it and hired him to write a few jams for her new record, which could have been a hit if it had a sexed up singalong this good. Tasked to remix something so already-complete, Teengirl Fantasy’s Nick Weiss leaves the vocal intact and just adds thump and glitter underneath, making it slinky enough that it might even be something to listen to while having said one night stand. The remix is from a forthcoming re-release of SSION's album Bent on August 7 by Dovecote, with additional reworks from Grimes and MNDR.
