“Chasing Summers” has served as one of Tiësto‘s opening tracks since being released on Club Life Vol. 2 last year, now Quintino and R3hab have a similar weapon for their crowds. The spooky build and chord progression from the original gets jacked up, packing an extra punch of electro and a quickened bass line. The in-house, Dutch family remix has been released via Musical Freedom the same day as another Tiësto-Quintino pairing, the Ultra anthem, “United.”
Tiësto’s ”Chasing Summers” debuted back in March and went on to be arguably his biggest track of the year. The airy ascending build up and barking acid-tinged drop proved to be an exemplary opener for Tijs. Many months later, the first official preview for R3hab and Quintino‘s remix has been released. Working off a similar formula to tracks like “Atom” and Jewelz and Scott Sparks’ “Flashbang,” R3hab and Quintino’s rendition presents a trembling, simplified drop with focused percussion work. While it may not have the same bite as the original, the influence remains clear in the minimalism of the drop. The remix will be released on March 5th on Musical Freedom.
Tiesto chatted with MTV News down in Miami and gave them the lowdown on some of the tracks from his Club Life Volume 2 Miami release. Once you get past the annoying video ads, you can hear Tiesto talk about how he met Luciana on the street in LA and she ended up doing “We Own The Night,” how “Chasing Summers” might get a vocal. Tiesto also reveals that his track with Swanky Tunes, “Make Some Noise,” is his favorite collaboration on the album, and how the young DJs in the game serve as inspiration for him. There are four videos in total, so head over to MTV to watch them all.
