What better way to start off the weekend than a new track to blast all weekend long? This time around, Norwegian producers Chris Viviano and SJUR collaborate together and provide us with their take on Alan Walker’s renowned track, Faded . The original has been praised for its smoothness and its heavy yet chill drop as well as the beautiful, delicate vocals. The song title certainly speaks for itself as listening to it honestly makes me feel a tad faded with its waviness.
The Viviano and SJUR remix however, manages to take the track to a completely different level by incorporating a deep house sound. Moreover, the drum that made such a significant statement in the original’s beat was replaced by “huge piano-fuelled drops” that was further accompanied with the use of impressive synths that serve to create the buildup for the dirty, unreal drop. Together, all of these new aspects provide us with a feel-good banger that is bound to make you lose yourself a little bit, or in my case, a lot.
Overall, this sweet remix is perfect for your summer and party playlists. All I have to say is that, if this is setting the tone for the summer and what’s yet to come, then it’s definitely safe to say that summer sixteen’s gonna be lit. 🙌
