Feeling the mix? Repost âŸ² it so more people can hear!
Ok so youâ€™re prob sitting there, iced coffee in hand, hungover af from the weekend, with half the tracks in your Soundcloud feed being Bring Back the Summer remixes, being like what on earth made someone want to do yet another oneâ€¦I get that. And yea, this may have knocked off Hello or Somebody I Used to Know for most remixed song of all time - the amount of trap arms thrown to this track already is seriously mind-boggling. BUTâ€¦I had to do it. If youâ€™ve been following me for a while you know I donâ€™t shy away from songs that have been remixed to death (Kanye, Lights, The Feelingâ€¦) and that I always bring something new to the table.
Pretty sure this is the first track Iâ€™ve heard Oly sing on but her voice is unreal and was a dream to work with. Rain Man crushed the original mix of this and to me, the only way to do a proper remix was to go in a completely different directionâ€¦new chords, new melody, totally flip the style even though itâ€™s the same tempo as the original. I went with some really vibey and unusual chords (Iâ€™m gonna do a tutorial on how I made this track for the producers out there) that gave it a good summer feel and hope this is gonna live at the top of your playlists all summer long.
1 - There is no greater luxury in life than having way too many iPhone chargers. I've got one in every outlet in my apartment now and short of having a yacht or being Calvin Harris it is literally the most baller shi* ever.
2 - I went to see Robyn at Gov Ball instead of The Strokes. BRING ON THE HATE
3 - If you eat pineapple while mastering a tropical house track the music gods will bestow on you 1 extra dB of loudness.
4 - Quick music theory lesson of the day (QMTLOTD) - this remix uses what I like to call the Teenage Dream chord trick...start on the IV, never resolve to the I, until the very last note of the song...gives a track a driving, endless feel that sounds unusual since people are so used to hearing progressions resolve to the tonic. More about this in the tutorial coming soon!
