Featuring a series of beautiful melodies overlaid with soft vocals, this latest progressive house remix from The Chainsmokers is, without question, one of their finest to date. Still maintaining the almost ethereal quality of Jonsi’s 2010 release while subtly incorporating their own electric flavor, the NYC-based duo has added just enough snare and bass to the transform the original track from an incredibly mellow ballad into a potential dance hit. An excellent choice for listeners in search of a slightly more chill record that still gets the blood flowing with its high-energy drops, this bold remix from the 4AM recording artists is the perfect addition to any Sunday afternoon playlist.Posted by
Acoustic version of dance music songs are currently all the rage. We’ve heard acoustic versions of Zedd’s “Spectrum” and “Clarity,” Above & Beyond’s “Sun and Moon,” Hardwell’s “Spaceman,” Swedish House Mafia’s “Dont You Worry Child,” and now Kaskade’s “4AM.” The American producer tweeted it out last night alongside the following statement, “Seems like more electronic artists are getting into the idea of doing acoustic versions of their songs. When I filmed this 4 years ago all it did was confuse people and the label just looked at me strangely when I delivered it.” We’re glad the world is finally embracing acoustic remakes especially because 4AM is one of our favorite tunes of all time. Check it out above and let us know in the comments section what other songs you’d like to hear acoustic versions of.Posted by
With our brand new Weekend Rewind series, Dancing Astronaut’s editors share some of our favorite tracks from the past.
It might not be 4 AM where we are but there’s never a wrong time for Adam K & Soha’s effortless remix of Kaskade’s track. There are few remixes of Kaskade tunes that beat out his original production, but in this case Adam K & Soha’s version takes the top spot by leaps and bound. The feel good vibe coupled with Becky Jean’s emotionally evocative vocals never fail to send chills up my spine. “4 AM” was released in 2008 and four years later I still get the same feeling as the first time I heard it. Press play and see if you do too.
