Although The Chainsmokers‘ name has now become synonymous with epic, grandiose remixes, the boys are more than capable of concocting a down-right insatiable R&B jam. While we didn’t really have much evidence of this innate ability prior to their latest remix, we now know it to be the truth. The funny thing is, like the duo, BANKS is also synonymous with something — that being, R&B. So given this recent revelation, it only seems appropriate that the two collide. Lucky for us, they have.
Now, we’ve listened to our fair share of ‘Chainsmoker remixes this past year, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen the boys in such good shape. They appear sharp and tailored, and this groovy new edit is proof of that. They set the structure early on with a section of featherlight piano chords and popping beats. When we finally have a healthy dose of spunk in our system, the rhythm picks up and we are swept away into an interminable trance. While, in truth, we haven’t even listened to BANKS‘ original version yet, we can’t imagine it carries this level of depth and flavour.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. These guys may have seriously outdone themselves with this one.
