While Lenno isn't the first to say that everyone has remixed Pharrell's smash hit, "Happy," and most notably by Vaux & Rivera and Kaytranada on Daily Beat, the young DJ/producer still wanted to give it a try. “I know this song has been remixed by everyone and their mother,” Lenno said, “but I still wanted to give it a try since the original is so genius and I had so many people asking me to do a remix."
Injecting the remix with his trademark nu-disco synth sounds and peppering it with delicate electronic flurries, it’s halfway through that Lenno’s true ability for elevating an already amazing single shines through, with the introduction of an epic, scorching guitar solo that blows the edit to a whole new level.
“I took it to a completely different direction from the original’s minimalism and basically made it sound like a massive stadium funk track from the future. A friend of mine said it sounds like a Prince song produced by Rustie on acid, which I think is apt! I had a lot of fun making it, so I hope everyone likes it.”
