Don Diablo

Don Diablo & CID’s floor shaking ‘Make Me Feel Better’ remix turns 4 years old

They may have just recently released their latest collaboration ‘Fever‘, but Don Diablo and CID will forever be remembered for that special track they dropped 4 years ago. The sound of summer in 2015, played on major radio stations across the globe, and known as having one of the most vibrant piano chord lines you’ve ever heard, Don Pepijn Schipper and Carlos Cid could never have anticipated the success of their remix of ‘Make Me Feel Better‘ by Alex Adair. The track has just hit its 4th birthday, so it is the perfect time to look back at one of 2015’s biggest tracks.

As individual artists, both Don Diablo and CID have had great success. Don’s Hexagon Label pulls in tracks from incredible producers and gives them the opportunity to shine, whilst their head honcho is out creating his own music and playing the likes of Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Ultra, though his split with the latter somewhat overshadowed his prior performances. CID has worked with the likes of Kaskade, Galantis, Conrad Sewell, and Don on a number of tracks, whilst also winning a Grammy together with Cedric Gervais for their work on the now-iconic ‘Summertime Sadness‘ remix, and being nominated again in 2019 for his remix of LSD’s ‘Audio‘. Collaborating back in 2015 but not for the first time – the pair had released tracks, including ‘Prototype‘ on Protocol Recordings, before this – Don and CID created what developed into the tune of the summer, and their track was played worldwide. With an infectious vocal, energetic piano chords, and trademark production quality, the duo truly constructed a masterpiece in its own right, and deservedly continue to see the track played out to this day.

Throw it back to 2015 with this impeccable release from Don Diablo and CID, collaborating to remix Alex Adair’s ‘Make Me Feel Better‘!
