The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – Something Just Like This (Remixes)
Having already broken records and topped the charts around the world, The Chainsmokers collaboration with Coldplay looks set to continue dominating in live sets over the upcoming festival season with the latest release of the official remix package. Featuring a number of high calibre names, the likes of Alesso, Don Diablo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Jai Wolf and R3hab are all on remix duties for “Something Just Like This” on this occasion, and theres bound to be something to fit everyone’s taste.
Kicking things off is Alesso, whose remix became one of the highlights of his recent Ultra Music Festival performance. The rework sees Chris Martin’s familiar top line pulled from the original’s 103 BPM, and replaced by a flurry of orchestral strings. Although radio friendly, the track takes on a distinct Alesso feel with a heavily melodic progressive vibe about the production, which wouldn’t look out of place within the club scene. Whilst Don Diablo’s remix, as you would expect, is intensely powerful, injecting a stream of energy into the already highly emotional track to create a truly breathtaking result. The truly masterful production is centered around its euphoric drop which gives the original track a new lease of life. With true precision, the Dutch superstar has expertly put his own imprint on the viral hit.
Tomorrowland regulars Dimitri Vegas & Like add their own big room touch, with the monster kick dominating when the drop kicks in, complemented with a sharp pluck that is bound to cause mayhem on the dance floor. Whilst Jai Wolf impresses yet again with this latest remix, curating a pleasantly surprising feel-good melodic anthem that fit perfectly with the vocals. Last but by no means least is R3hab, who takes the track in a more chilled, tropical direction flittered with chopped vocals and plucked basslines, with an end result that will work perfectly at a chilled summer pool party.
Overall, the remix package is a diverse spread of dancefloor fillers and downtempo anthems, all of which do justice to the original which will surely go down as one of the biggest tracks of 2017. Stream the remix package in full below.
