Martin Garrix & Dean Lewis release acoustic version of ‘Used To Love’

Following some impeccable remixes from the STMPD RCRDS roster, Martin Garrix and Australian singer-songwriter Dean Lewis have finally released the long awaited acoustic version of their recent single ‘Used To Love‘. The Dutch electronic sensation has enlisted vocalists on acoustic versions of previous tracks, but this one stands out above the rest. The original of ‘Used To Love‘ was released back in October, and after remixes from Osrin & Beau Collins, Bart B More, SWACQ, and Jimi Hyde, the time came for Garrix and Lewis to drop the beautiful acoustic version.

The original takes a low-key natural future bass sound, with some stunning synths and vocal chops giving the relatively chilled drop an insane energy. Garrix has flipped the track into an acoustic masterpiece alongside Lewis, with a piano-driven instrumental layered with some strings backing up the Aussie’s vocals. Simplicity is key in this track, with a glorious orchestral feel within this release. There comes a time when an artist reaches a point at which you aren’t quite surprised by what they produce or release, and they become predictable in their track selection and production, yet that time doesn’t seem close for Martin Garrix who yet again exceeds expectations on this stunning acoustic take on ‘Used To Love‘.

Garrix said about the acoustic version:

“Super excited to finally release the acoustic version of ‘Used To Love’. Dean is such a talent and writes deeply personal lyrics, which will carry out even more beautifully in this acoustic version”.
