The Chainsmokers


Music, RemixAlli LindseyComment

In 2018, the world of music and art is in a state of a never-before-seen flux. Overalls are back, and Champion is officially "hypebeast;" with only 2 years until the roaring 20s, contemporary aesthetics are as distinguished as they've ever been. But groovy looks, and fresh new music reap dogmatic, and know-it-all-attitudes. One of EDMs most recognized names, despite their monumental success and fan-base, The Chainsmokers, are frequently criticized for lack of originality and dexterity. While the duo quite literally sets trends for the millennial generation, they can't seem escape the skeptical hive mind which surrounds their music. 

Fortunately, New York-based producer, Fareoh just flipped The Chainsmokers' "You Owe Me" into a more dynamic, distinguished piece. With a whopping 31 million plays on YouTube, "You Owe Me" is actually one of the lesser known tracks from the smokers, which ultimately allows Fareoh's signature cadences to revitalize a seemingly "mainstream" track. This flip accelerates the tempo of the original, creating a space of adrenaline and bliss. Radiating bouts of synth expand across the foundation of the single, creating a spacious ebb and flow. Here, a song originally made for radio plays and arena tours effortlessly became an individualistic creation, with an underground EDM aroma. Both emotional and dance-floor-ready, Fareoh is solidifying himself as one of the years' most proficient producers/mixers.

We were sent this song a week and a half ago and were instantly impressed. I didn’t realize at first that I already knew SHY Martin’s work, but now that I’ve done my research and also see that this new single is the third song on Spotify’s primary New Music Friday playlist this week, I’m certain she’s one to watch. This song is a perfect modern pop smash. Martin’s velvety, sensual vocals, which are processed just the right amount, sit perfectly above expertly crafted and mixed electropop production. What solidifies “Good Together” as a smash is the healthily saccharine hooks and Julia Michaels-esque melodies and lyrics. It’s not surprising the Swedish songwriter has already amassed more than one billion streams globally for her writing and featured artist appearances, which include everyone from The Chainsmokers and Kygo to Bebe Rexhe and Astrid S. You might also recognize her vocals from her massive 400 million stream hit with Mike Perry “The Ocean.” I’m a huge fan already, and I’m excited to see the waves she’ll continue making in the greater music community.

Said The Sky has done it again! The Denver-based producer has just blessed us with his rework of The Chainsmokers' "All We Know" and to call it a must-hear would be an understatement. Recognizably Said The Sky in style, the remix is melodic, bubbly and feel good all the way through. Having just released a couple of mega-collaborations with 3LAU, Seven Lions and Illenium, all eyes have been on the rising producer to follow up with a great tune - and this one has more than exceeded my expectations. Grab a free download HERE and show your friends, they deserve the midweek pick-me-up.

Just as we thought we were at the end of seeing "Closer" remixes, here comes the Sultan of Summer, Viceroy, hitting us with a piano lead disco jam! I got a little chuckle right as I hit play with the Lyn Collins "Think (About It)" sample...oh you thought I was going to say "It Takes Two" from Rob Base and DJ E-Z?? Do your homework of course they took it from Lyn's cut from 1972 - a cool listen by the way. Ha ha I digress...Viceroy has put his own poolside spin on The Chainsmoker's original speeding it up adding guitars, pianos and claps the way Viceroy knows best. According to the artist, “I've known the chainsmokers since the beginning of my career and their team. It's really amazing to see something blow up from the beginnings. When they asked me to remix their hit I was happy to support them. I had a blast and I hope ya'll enjoy it!” You can grab this remix as a free download here

This is the second "Closer" remix we've supported at this point, and damn ARMNHMR has hit it out of the park! The drop comes in with a flurry of moving synths, vocal "huh's" and chops on top of some spicy deep sub that have totally taken this song to another level. If you're looking for that hype remix of this billboard chart topper, then look no further ARMNHMR adds just the dose of adrenaline to light up dance floors everywhere.

Eyyy lookie lookie Matt and Eli aka Two Friends are back with great re-work of The Chainsmoker's #1 single "Closer." I didn't get the opportunity to do a write up about the original, so I gotta take a moment to throw some mad props to Freddy from Louis the Child and Shaun Frank for co-writing and helping get this track up off the ground, and Drew from The Chainsmokers for putting his own vocals on the track. That can be a scary leap, but Drew crushed it out of the park with the first swing. Now on to Two Friends's mix - the guys have collabed with Class & Clowns amping up the rhythm a bit for this rework, adding guitar and definitely putting their own amigo flare to the chorus. The drop busts out with a huge distorted synth, spiking up and enveloping the track in a wall of sound. The original is already a pop breakout hit and this rework is undoubtedly stoking the fire.

If you thought this Friday couldn’t get any better, you’ve thought wrong. After months of endless hype since the live debut of this song at Coachella, The Chainsmokers have finally caved in with the release of their track “Closer” with pop singer and songwriter Halsey. We can only hope that The Chainsmokers have more releases line like this lined up for the rest of the year, because it’s pretty darn amazing! It's so catchy and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't playing it on repeat all morning.
