Steve James Leads Melanie Martinez' "Soap" Remix Pack With Fantastic Rendition

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

At the ripe age of 17, Steve James has accomplished more than some industry veterans. He has already had major label remixes released for top of the line artists such as Felix Cartal, ZHU, and Dillon Francis, and is showing no signs of slowing down. His most recent effort is a downtempo remix of "Soap" by Melanie Martinez, and shows a completely different side to his already advanced production abilities. James displays his incredible piano chops that are well beyond his years, pairing them beautifully with Martinez' beautiful vocals. Slowed down trap percussion lays subtly beneath the surface as more elements join the mix, culminating in an uplifting progressive house drop. Released on Big Beat Records as part of the official 'Soap' remix package, you can add another accolade to the already impressive list for the young native of Pennsylvania. If you are looking to see Steve James perform live, you can catch him on select stops of The Chainsmokers' Friendzone Tour.  Check out James' remix of 'Soap' on Soundcloud below, and show some support for this young rising artist!
