New York city DJ/production do, The Chainsmokers, have been absolutely killing it of late. With their North American fall tour coming to an end later this month, the duo is back to releasing music that will sure please the rising fan base across the globe. This afternoon, we have a treat from the duo and RCA Records with their indie-progressive remix to Mikky Ekko's "Kids." While The Chainsmokers turned their attention to the Nashville artist, they took the true original form to heart with the hints of indie flavor and catchy melodic and big room sounds. Definitely keep your eye out for more from this duo, and be sure to check out the unique range of remixes and originals on their SoundCloud.
Quickie from us (The Chainsmokers): 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.
