" 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?
