There’s just something about mixing indie rock and house music together. Tiesto did it with his remix of Youngblood Hawke’s We Come Running, and A-Trak’s remix of Heads Will Roll regularly assaults dance floors with the perfection that is Karen-O. Combine the raw energy and emotion of a great alternative rock or pop track with the driving beat and depth of progressive house and you can almost guarantee toe-tapping, hands-up play time in minds and on stages.
If you’re looking for your next indie-house remix to play at sunset on the beach or close out the club night with, look no further than The Chainsmokers’ latest remix, Last Forever. The original Fenech-Soler track, which sounds like a cross between A-Ha and The Naked and Famous, is given the huge, progressive house turnaround that can easily land it right at home on the festival stage or at your next midnight dance party. It comes complete with uplifiting anthem synths, bouncy drums, and a chord progression that really does capture the emotion of the vocal better than the original track.
…the chord work on the remix is a structure we had been playing with for a while and were very happy when the chords paired up nicely with the emotion of the song and the rest, as music should, came naturally. – The Chainsmokers
