New York duo The Chainsmokers are back with their latest free download with the uplifting remix of Mikky Ekko’s ‘Kids’. Coming off the huge success of remixing Icona Pop’s ‘Girlfriend’ and Cash Cash’s ‘Take Me Home’, The Chainsmokers have cemented themselves as one of the premiere producers of the moment. Combining their indie approach with an uplifting progressive melody, this remix is beautiful in it’s own style.
‘Mikky Ekko is an absurdly talented writer and vocalist so when we had the chance to work on a track of his we were delighted. He brings this perfect blend of pop/mainstream sensibility and indie but strikes a great balance with his really unique voice and styling which is something we care a lot about… 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…. which allowed us to cater to the high energy of house but maintain a unique undertone which we put a lot of importance on with our productions’
