I was lucky enough to see The Chainsmokers when they played a warehouse party in Brooklyn about 8 months ago and yes, they absolutely killed it, so be jealous. Their star was moving along at a brisk pace until it went supernova with #SELFIE. Now, I’m hearing co-workers & friends quoting the lyrics while they complain about the culture. Love it or hate it, they moved the needle and started a conversation both about the idea of selfies and the people who take them. They dropped a new remix today and I have to say, you’re going to hear a lot of these guys this summer.
The tune has anthem written all over it and I’m going to count the minutes until I hear sets with multiple Chainsmokers tracks in them by DJs globally. The remix has a potent injection of energy while not saturating you with cheese. The lyrics & original vocal work are used appropriately and not stamped out by the big room sound like you’d expect. Expect to hear this a lot, and be glad it’s this and not the 86 inferior clones of this sound currently sitting in various charts on Beatport.(via EDMTunes)
