The Chainsmokers Strike Again!

They’re back at it again! Drew and Alex, better known as The Chainsmokers, have been pumping out killer remix after killer remix. This brand new one is no different! This time, the boys tackled “Operate” by ASTR, and it’s even an official remix! The mix of seductive vocals and catchy tempo make this masterpiece a perfect summer jam. Check out how the track was born below and be sure to give it a listen. I promise it’s worth your time.

“ASTR shot us the stems and the song came together really fast. With amazing vocals and instrumentation like in the original, this song was sorta true to the expression dont try to teach an old dog new tricks…. the song was already so full, so we weren’t trying to revolutionize it, even stripped of its instrumental it had class, it was really just a matter of finding sounds that were simple. We see our remixes as always being these colorful emotional experiences and this whole song is this dark plush sponge of red, and once we found our sounds, within an hour the melody was set, and it was just a question of pouring sand into a bottle of rocks (PS way to many metaphors in that description)”
