Bringing back intense flashbacks of adolescence, Team Bayside spins The Postal Service’s mellow “Such Great Heights” into a psychedelic-tinged rendition.
Coming off the official single release, Chromeo took on Vampire Weekend’s “The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance” back in 2008 adding subtle rhythm and 80s synth pop vibe.
Somehow managing to turn one of the most feel good songs of the season into an even more enjoyable version, Reich & Bleich speed up the vocal and add an enchanting beat.
RAC take the official remix for Two Door Cinema’s “Next Year” by creating a smoothed out version in true downtempo fashion working in the emotional vocal that will turn into an immediate favorite.
