With this remix, I wanted to keep the energy and mood of the original song whilst making it more suitable for a club and dancefloor setting.
I stripped back a lot of the melodic elements that are in the song to give the remix a simple but direct, clean sound.
I ended up chopping Ellie's vocals in the drop as I thought it sounded quite cool, remembering to switch it up every few bars to avoid it becoming repetitive.
A subtle flute sound is used during the chorus as a mid-range instrument double acting as a chord progression.
A self recorded 'boing' sound is also used frequently during the chorus because I thought it sounded fun and interesting alongside Ellie's vocals.
The snares, cymbals, shakers and hi-hats used are all acoustic sounding, as an homage to the sound design of Clean Bandit's first album 'New Eyes'.
I hope you enjoy listening to the remix as much as I had fun making it.
