Last month, The Knocks surprised everyone with a collaboration with indie/alternative band Foster the People. Titled “Ride Or Die,” the disco-pop track combined the best aspects of both groups. Now, a remix of the track has dropped from one of EDM’s best duos: Big Gigantic.
Dom and Jeremy give “Ride of Die” a very funky makeover with their new remix. The duo adds a more traditional 4/4 beat to the track, making it dancefloor-ready from the get-go. Then, Big Gigantic goes full-on disco house during the remix’s chorus. They leave plenty of room for some sultry saxophone playing as well. The remix still gives Marc Foster‘s vocals a chance to shine, although Big Gigantic cleverly play with his pitch throughout. A bit of a clunky build-up almost disrupts the remix’s flow; however, the verses and chorus work so well that ultimately the remix succeeds at updating the original track.
