Just when you thought Guy Sebastian‘s “Like A Drum” couldn’t get any catchier, the uplifting anthem gets an infectious overhaul from The Chainsmokers. (Yep, the EDM duo behind zeitgeist-capturing hit “#Selfie”). It turns out to be a genius pairing, with the remix lifting an already great song to new heights.
The first thing you notice about the new version of “Like A Drum” is the playful change of tempo. Instead of speeding things up (as per usual with a remix), The Chainsmokers actually slow things down at the beginning before building it back up to an explosive crescendo. They also do an excellent job of magnifying the addictive hook. Put on your dancing shoes and listen after the jump.
