Clean Bandit - Rather Be (Francis Mercier Remix)

Saturday, July 12, 2014
Chris Bergin

"Rather Be" by Clean Bandit has been remixed, bootlegged, covered and mashed up by every artist or DJ under the sun. In fact, upon receiving this remix I genuinely didn't want to listen to it. The number of shamefully bad remixes of this song I've happened upon is extraordinary. Despite this, you should give Francis Mercier's Remix a listen. Mercier, a native of New York and graduate from the prestigious Brown University, has zeroed in on a genre rapidly gaining popularity: Future Deep House. With the meteoric rise of artists like Oliver Heldens (signed to Tiesto's label Musical Freedom), and ZHU (who's track "Faded" recently crossed 3,000,000 plays), it seems like deeper tracks with heftier basslines have captivated the attention of dance fans globally. Keep an eye out for Francis Mercier - with releases like this, there's no telling where he could land in a year. Ibiza? Have a listen below and pick up the FREE DOWNLOAD on his Facebook page!
