The Chainsmokers New "Kids" Remix!

The Chainsmokers are back at it again! They have just released their own remix of the song “Kids” by Mikky Ekko.

They have been quoted stating,

“Mikky is an absurdly talented writer and vocalist so when we had the chance to work on a track of his we were delighted because we feel he is this perfect blend of pop/mainstream and indie which is two qualities we hold more dear to us than anything.  Between his really unique voice and its styling which is something we care a lot about and and our style of producing we though we could create a really interesting remix that embodies are tastes… When we started producing the song we gravitated towards the more progressive sound, flush with big synths but wanted to pair it with a sweeping horn over the drop to give it this really grand almost orchestra feeling that gave it a unique feeling, almost cinematic in nature. In doing so it allowed us to maintain a high energy remix but maintain a unique undertone. In the end his rhythmic vocals along with the piano chords allows the tracks to cruise along effortlessly.”

The Chainsmokers have shows in Boston 11/16 at Whiskey Siagon, then at LIV in Miami on 11/22 and Marquee NYC on 11/23 coming up. The duo have more remixes coming out for artist’s NONONO which was played on W&W’s BBC Essential mix, and The Colourist. Additionally the two have original material coming out with Ghost Beach, Great Good Fine Okay and Adrian Lux, amongst others…
