LA indie band Youngblood Hawke (pictured) hit gold when they released the track We Come Running. Infectious, uplifting and happy, the song was an anthem for the young generation and quickly became one of the summer’s biggest hits. It’s also the kind of song that is just begging to be remixed and fixed up with a little EDM flare.
Vicetone, a Dutch DJ duo, has totally transformed the easygoing indie jam into a peak-time, big room remix. The group blends the catchy vocals with uplifting synths and pushes the original out onto the mainstage of a festival. Euphoric and memorable without becoming cheesy, this is big-room remixing done right. Canadian producer Giddy also offers his own version, a mellow, more progressive take on the original. Soft but powerful, the 4AM version is exactly what it sounds like– a dreamy dance towards the sunrise (think Adam K & Soha). While Giddy’s version is yet to be officially released, download Vicetone’s remix here for free.
