I’m addicted to The Chainsmokers, and I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon. The boys continued their torrid pace from last year with yet another free download this week, this time taking on Swedish pop vocalist Tove Lo and her breakout hit, Habits, turning it into a dancefloor demon. Not convinced? Read what they have to say about the production process below.
Habits is one of those unique blend of feelings, its gangster, sexy, relatable, and fun… So with that in mind, we set out to create a song that complimented the vocals and the subject of the song but brought it into the club arena. The thing with our production lately is we are looking to close the gap between this big kick room house with the huge spacey middle and really melodic full progressive sound and combine it with our love for Indie emotion… its definitely challenging but we feel we are getting closer and closer”
For a group best known for its pop-orientated progressive house sound, this track is a club-ready beast with a surprisingly heavy drop. That said, it still maintains the canorous sound and inspiring vocals that fans have come to love–it’s the best of both worlds, really. 2014 could be a very big year indeed for this promising duo.
