Hungarian duo Stadiumx turns in a supercharged upgrade to Cash Cash‘s massive Surrender that, thanks to carefully applied augmentations and slight tweaks, more resembles a tune-up than a rebuild, and LessThan3 has your first exclusive listen.
When working with such a rounded, complete smash-hit without intention of a complete overhaul, one can hope to do little more than enhance the track’s existing magic. In their remix, the guys of Stadiumx select aspects of Cash Cash’s original and boost them in different ways–peppering in slight accents in empty space, digging deeper in a spacious new piano breakdown. Perhaps most notably, they install a bright new lead melody with shuddering background tones and the same aspiration as the original–unbridled positive energy. And what’s better than one impassioned Julia Michaels on vocals? A choir of them, of course.
