Valentino Khan remixed Alison Wonderland‘s “Good Enough” and reshaped the trap original into a higher speed, electro house-inpired heater. With vocal chop melodies and orchestral undertones on the build, the remix quickly picks up and drops into quick gritty bass notes and shuffle-inducing percussion.
After Wonderland’s successful release of her second studio album, Awake, earlier this year, the Australian top-tier DJ has enlisted remix talents for singles “Church” and “Easy.” Now, it’s time for the lead single off her album to get a rework from the Owsla producer. So far in 2018, Khan’s done official remixes for Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” and Diplo, French Montana, and Lil Pump‘s “Welcome to the Party.”
Along with the weekend came a bevy of top industry taste maskers spotlighting the upcoming year’s most popular dance floor anthems in their sets. Over the weekend, 1001tracklists.com compiled a list of the Top Ten most-played tracks at Ultra Music Festival. From singles one might expected to see from names like Drake, Skrillex, and GTA, a deeper listen into the list reveals some tracks that will surely surprise and delight.
In years past, the tracks dominating Ultra’s main stage were seen as a way to forecast which generic trends might be dominating the festival season cycle. The sheer diversity in this year’s compiled list displays a wider range of genre crossing, however, which speaks to dance music’s diversification of tastes and sounds.
