I wanted the song to be more cheerful and have a faster tempo.
But I did not like how Ellie’s vocals sound at a higher tempo than 102BPM.
(Ellie should be able to sing along my remix on stage. ;)
I had pop songs like Walking on Sunshine from Katrina & the Waves in my ears.
For me, it’s the drums that bring the fun in these songs.
So, I went for a drum&bass like remix.
However, I did not want all the wobble effects of the standard drum&bass remixes.
It had to be less rooted in the genre to reach a broader poppy audience.
I really like the original mix.
Though, the bass had to be deeper and more present in the whole track.
Inspired by the video clip, I had this picture of the young president dancing like he doesn’t care.
Express yourself and do some funky moves, boy!
I needed to translate this in the remix with 2 sections where Ellie’s vocals go completely crazy:
- “Oh mum, don’t know what this is!”.
I hope that you will like the result.
Spread the energy!
Thank you Skio Music, Big Beat Records and Clean Bandit for this opportunity.
