Robin Schulz: A Cautionary Tale

Let me start by saying, I absolutely love everything Robin Schulz has ever made, and this certainly isn't an attack on him (more of an analysis of a trend). Have you heard the track "Waves" by a certain Mr.Probz? The answer to that is yes, yes you have. My next question would be, have you actually heard the original? For the Average Joe, that's a resounding no. Every time "Waves" is played by a hit radio station, it's not the original, but rather the Robin Schulz Remix. Personally, I've got no problem with this decision, however I'd venture to guess that Mr.Probz feels a bit gypped. mr-angry-probz Here in lies the curse of the Robin Schulz Remix. There's a very good chance that his drum laden, sped up version of the original will eclipse the popularity of the artist's first effort. Be that as it may, if artistic pride isn't an issue, a remix by Schulz can push an unknown artist into the spotlight. He has the unique ability to appeal to both Deep House fans, and everyday radio listeners, effectively proving his Midas Touch. keyz Further perpetuating this trend, you NEED to listen to Schulz's take on Axwell Λ Ingrosso's track "Something New". It's almost unfair how Schulz can take a song fit for a club, and rework it into a record perfect for nearly any environment. Have a listen below, and remember, behind every Robin Schulz Remix is a creative artist worthy of a listen!
