The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey – Closer (West Wing & Alex Aiono Flip)
The Chainsmokers’ single with Halsey titled “Closer”, which is one of this summer’s biggest hits, just received an absolutely stunning rendition from an upcoming music producer from Scotland. Known as West Wing, the Glasgow-based talent recently released his debut track on Soundcloud along with the vocals of prominent singer Alex Aiono.
Carrying on the success of the original track, which has astoundingly topped numerous music charts and received a couple of platinum certifications, West Wing flips “Closer” into an awe-inspiring auditory experience from start to finish. As his first-ever release, there is not a better way for this Scottish producer to showcase his production skills than this masterpiece he dropped.
With its impeccable combination of Aiono’s compelling vocals and West Wing’s astonishing instrumentals, this new version is truly a must-hear track. West Wing keeps some elements from the original tune, such as the catchy beat and the melodic progressions, but fuses in some of his own sounds as well.
A different climatic sequence is presented from this version, which emphasizes more on oscillating synths and hard-hitting trap beats. Reworking The Chainsmokers’ gem is not, by any means, an easy task but West Wing effectively displays his capabilities of producing top-notch remixes through this overall brilliant rendition of “Closer”.
