I wanted to get a Latin/Pop/trap-edm type of Remix.The first thing i did was the lows part. It started to feel like the last part Shape Of You from Ed sheeran (because of the guitar and the kick on step i think), and i thought it was great for a build-up.. i wanted this part to repeat all over the track because it was like a change of escenary. And to make the impact i put a soft piano with some sidechain in the intro. I think no one expects this change of rhythm. For the drop, (i listen a lot of Reggeaton and Latin music, i am from Argentina) i wanted it to be catchy and danceable. I started with a flute but the sound got lost with the guitar and the 808, so i made up a Sax or Trompet kind of sound. I also added lots of percussion and FXs to make a groovy ambience (Like the intro thats its a song pitched down so its unrecognizable).
Basically it all came together perfectly and like not always, all i wanted on the track, i could made it possible.
Hopefully you guys like the Remix! It was a lot of fun working with this clean acapella (although the ad-libs were with the lead vocal!).
