Taking advantage of Foxes lovely yet powerful vocals, The Chainsmokers produced an absolute banger sure to ring in the weekend.
Here’s what Alex and Drew had to say about their remix:
“The Thing about Foxes is we Love her… Her vocals are beautiful and effortless and carry such a nice emotional sense of gravity. Its why we think her vocals always do so well with dance music. Holding onto Heaven was definitely a fun challenge for us to remix. The original is very far from a dance track and we wanted to think out of the box and do something unusual with the vocal. Additionally there were so many cinematic parts to the song to use particularly the string. In our remix you will here some vocal transposing that we think adds this very strange but unique edge that cuts through. That paired with our melody and the strong we think we came out with a very dynamic song that’s in a constant flux of feeling.”

Over the past month (our hiatus) The Chainsmokers have been busy releasing remix after remix, so here’s what we missed.
Looking for some great hip-hop, well Skizzy Mars is the rapper for you. The LP we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. With 7 brand spankin new tracks, PACE totals a respectable 12 tracks into this LP that we all can enjoy for the next few months.
With his last mixtape, Phases, as good as it was, there’s no surprise to find this LP that much more impressive.
With every verse penetrating our ears, Skizzy, without a doubt is going to be huge in time. So grab the free download above or stream the entire LP below.
With yesterday marking the release of Pharrell’s sophomore album G I R L, the Miami duo, Urban Noize gives us a great remix to Pharrell’s song “Happy”.
Personally, I was not that crazy about the original. To me it felt like it was too happy (without sounding too redundant). But Urban Noize put together a remix that is quite nice and relaxed. The down-tempo and soul vibes really work well together to the point where I forget how bad the original is.
What do you think of Urban Noize’s remix? Let us know in the comments.
For the past 2 years, it seems as if we cannot go 3 days without coming across a new Lana Del Rey remix. Typically the remixes all start to blend together and after a while it feels like the same song over and over again. But before you think this is a rant, think again.
Matt Halper and Eli Sones who call themselves The Two Friends just released this absolute banger! For me, it’s not so much the vocals that get me, but the buildup and symphony-like breaks that makes you want to get up and dance.
Throughout middle school and high school I had a crazy obsession with Paramore. Unfortunately throughout college I lost interest until lead singer, Halley Williams appeared on Zedd’s song “Stay The Night”. Now Paramore is popping up everywhere, and I’m not complaining.
The latest Paramore spotting comes from New York native, DJ Riddler. His take on Paramore’s song “Ain’t It Fun” adds a funky house feel to the song. This remix is fun to listen to and I can only wish you luck on keeping this remix off repeat. So grab the free download and enjoy!
Australian house producer, Julius Abel is pure genius for his remix to “Sweater Weather“. The song, originally by The Neighbourhood, can be heard on a wide variety of radio stations, but this is not the version which Julius Abel used for his remix. In fact he used the vocals and guitar riffs from the talented L.A. based singer-songwriter, Kina Grannis. Check out Kina’s version in the video below.
This is our first time posting music from Julius Abel and it would be a sin to finish this post off without showcasing another one of his remixes. Free download available HERE.
