Since Pegboard Nerds and LOUDPVCK teased their official remixes for “Paris” yesterday, it’s only right that the full pack comes out today! Containing additional remixes from VINAI, Jewelz & Sparks, Party Thieves and FKYA, the remix pack is nothing if not diverse.
VINAI’s remix is especially surprising. The duo strays away from their typical big room/electro sound for a smoother, future bass interpretation. In fact, LOUDPVCK does the same – albeit straying away from trap, rather than big room.
The remix from Pegboard Nerds, on the other hand, is quite simply one of our favorites tracks from them ever. Not only does it completely blow the original out of the water, it’s probably one of our favorite remixes of 2017 so far. From resampling the vocals pre-drop to sound more emo/screamo, than ballad, and then dropping it like nobody’s business… it’s just so fucking good.
Jewelz & Sparks put a fresh house take on the original, laying a four-on-the-floor beat over the lyrics and synths, mostly unchanged from the original, but with noticeably more energy. The remix from Party Thieves is as short as Pegboard Nerds’, though admittedly lacking in energy; most of the track is build and bridge, rather than main drop.
FKYA rounds things up with a more indie dance remix, taking the guitar riff in the original and playing off that as a main melody. Less EDM than the others, this one still plays off the original beautifully and comes just behind Pegboard Nerds as our second favorite remix of the bunch.
