As the year is rounding down, the one name that surely sticks out amongst its competitors is Marshmello. Since his debut, the masked icon has received major recognition as one of the faces for the scene, whose summery sound has been not only heard, but seen on the commercial spectrum as well. Known for his remix capabilities, Marshmello has taken on the like including Alan Walker, Calvin Harris, Adele, and Lana Del Ray. Now, for the second time since his “Where Are U Now” remake, Marshmello is tackling a second Justin Bieber anthem, this time, DJ Snake’s “Let Me Love You”.
Not only did this song see immense mainstream distribution, “Let Me Love You” still remains on Billboard’s Top 100. Last heard from an October Snapchat, Marshmello teased the fans with a release and needless to say, it’s been worth the wait. It’s always interesting to hear the way a producer interprets a track, Mashmello really drifted from his original sound here and the outcome is blissful. With an all over dubstep feel, from the top of the track listeners are brought in with heightened percussion, but allowing enough room for the vocals and original scale to peak through. The buildup has the perfect undertone, and allows the drop’s foundation to flourish. Typical to Marshmello style, the drop presents major pick up, along with massive synth work to not only alter the songs original, but give it that Marshmello flavor we’ve all grown to love. The song comes in at just over 3 minutes, and really highlights how far his production execution has come.
Marshmello’s take on this DJ Snake track is one that will certainly do well, and is soon to be one of his best to date. Take a listen to the Proximity premier below, and let us know what you think.
