This post was originally published on this site

Slushii‘s burst onto the EDM scene has been felt in waves, and the Los Angeles based producer shows no signs of slowing down. With a debut album — Out Of Light — released in August, massive performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, & EDC Orlando, and a plethora of incoming original releases and remixes, the ascendant producer is hitting the ground running into 2018.

On his newest remix to “MIC Drop,” Slushii injects his own carbonated blend of EDM ear candy into the hip hop original, forsaking its ominous overtones for bubbly, anime-inspired tones. The track’s invigorating synths will surely impact the dancefloor during the upcoming festival season.

The Chainsmokers have linked up with K-Pop group, BTS, for a melodic house number that exemplifies the Korean group’s vocal talent, while reminding Chainsmokers fans around the world that the American duo still has a sharp ear when it comes to studio productions.

“We became acquainted with The Chainsmokers when we met them at a waiting room during the Billboard Awards after they invited us,” ‘Rap Monster,’ a member of BTS revealed. “We kept in touch after the that and talked about working together.” And so “Best of Me” was born, with Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart credited as the song’s producers. In classic Chainsmoker style, Best of Me couples an insanely catchy beat with a radio friendly yet EDM-esque drop.
