The Chainsmokers Give "Medicine" by Daughter the Perfect Remix Treatment

The Chainsmokers are among the most frequent guests here on State In The Real, and for good reason. Everything this duo from New York touches gets a fresh face-lift into solid gold. This time they rework English indie folk band Daugter’s “Medicine” into a uplifting house and dance track that has something for everybody.

Here’s a short bio on The Chainsmokers:

The Chainsmokers from NYC love making and playing music, partying, and eating (esp bacon) but underneath this all, brewing there is an intense competition between the two guys. So pick your side now #TeamAlex or #TeamDrew… we can all party and make music but when it comes down to it your going to need a side… so make sure you choose the right one cause the time will come where they will take this competitiveness to a place no one has gone. The Chainsmokers recent remixes went #1, #2 and #4 on HypeM and have seen support from W&W, Michael Brun, Adrien Lux and others they may be playin live near you soon, or maybe not, sometimes its just cooler to be mysterious.

And here is their inspiration behind this awesome remix:

Basically we heard this tune on a cold winter day in New York and fell head over heals for it. We were already very  familiar with Daughter but as soon we heard this song we knew we had to give it a try. We loved that ‘Medicine’  for the fact that you couldn’t really tell of the song was happy or sad, and that appealed to us a lot.  So we got to work and It was a lot of back and forth for us because we needed a symmetry between her soft vocals and our own production that appealed to the ambiguity of the song itself, so we slowly built it up with warm plucks and drums that complimented Daughters production nicely, adding up the layer after layer till you feel this great tension in the song as it goes from this really uplifting vibe to something that maybe this isn’t entirely so…There is a lot of hardstyle music out there so we just think its refreshing to give ppl a sound you can listen to in any situation without sacrificing the energy and emotion, so be it a big room club, studying for exams, or crying over a break-up you can enjoy it.
