I have steered away from mainstream EDM lately because of a lack of originality, but the Chainsmokers will always be a duo that I follow. These two producers come in and always know how to flip a song, turning it into a powerhouse. This remix of Life Of Dillon's Overload is a bit different from their normal catalog of music (it has more of a future vibe to it). Nonetheless, it is very boppable and a perfect track to push you to finish the week out strong.
- The Chainsmokers rose to fame with their single #Selfie and they have produced a lot of tracks that kinda mimic the progressive, electro feel of that track. This Overload remix however houses a vibe-filled future sound that makes you want to just move your body, throw your hands up, and become fully immersed in the music.
- The Chainsmokers are an anomaly in the electronic music scene because these dudes understand their music and what they are trying to do. First and foremost, they know how to produce music in a variety of styles and genres. Secondly, the two are just trying to make music and have fun with it. Those two objectives create awesome music with a unique personality that we can all enjoy.
- This may seem like a cop out but I love the story behind this track. Check it out below:
We remember the day our manager came into our studio aka drew's living room apartment to show us this new band he was going to sign to Disruptor Records. The first record he played us was this tune Overload and we were hooked! We had never heard of them before but we proceeded to listen to 10 more songs of theirs and we were blown away. Their sound was so refreshing from the instruments to their vocals. There was a summertime quality to all their music that couldn't be denied. Flash forward a couple months and we had the chance to meet them in LA. We proceeded to do what any dudes meeting for the first time would do, we through a mansion party at a buddies got totally blackout and missed the call time for what was our Let You Go music video. Flash even more forward and Overload is taking over top40 and they are about to drop their next single Dreams! The boys were cool enough to let us take a shot a remixing overload and putting our touch on it. The song itself is already just so amazing and vibey... its like drinking coconut water on a beach while getting a foot rub and someone somewhere else transferring large sums of money into your bank acct. SO we figured why change that and just change the foot rub to a back massage and money to a kiss from a chick you really are into but didn't know she was also into you.... So without further adieu... our remix of Overload!
Quickie From US: "So LOD is our fucking brothers you see... these dudes are total gems! Mark our words these guys are going to be absolutely massive by the end of the summer and we are proud to be their friends and supporters"
