Calvin Harris pledged to remix a Spice Girls song if Australia legalized gay marriage

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 2012, Calvin Harris reportedly pledged to remix the Spice Girls classic “2 Become 1” if Australia eventually legalized marriage equality.

Calvin Harris likely forgot about the promise he made half a decade ago, but Filip Odzak has certainly not forgotten about the Scottish superstar’s agreement with him. After the Australian House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of same sex marriage, Odzak was quick to remind Harris of their gentleman’s bet.

Odzak took to social media following the legislation’s passing, proclaiming that “We made a deal — sealed with a handshake,” adding that he has been waiting a lengthy five years for this. “I’m very excited to hear what you do with the track to celebrate the occasion.”

Even Spice Girl’s own Emma Bunton weighed in on the wager, “Let’s spice up Calvin Harris! It would be fab for Calvin to remix ’2 Become 1,’” she told British outlet The Sun.

It is unclear whether or not Calvin Harris will follow through with the bet, but Odzak is holding out hope, going so far as to state in an interview with Australia’s Power Back Radio show, “You’re very rich, you can have anything you want. I’ve got nothing, just do this for me.”

Here’s to hoping, for Odzak’s sake, that Harris does good on his word.

Kygo releases OneRepublic collaboration and pop-leaning ‘Riding Shotgun’ ahead of album release

This post was originally published on this site

Kygo‘s sophomore album Kids in Love is set for release on November 3, and for a week preceding, the Norwegian producer has been releasing one track a day from the LP. So far, the album is a combination of tropical house and pop with collaborations ranging from John Newman to OneRepublic.

The first three tracks from the album that have been released are the title track “Kids In Love,” “Never Let You Go,” and “Sunrise.” So far, each track has been incredibly different, and the Norwegian producer’s next two releases “Riding Shotgun” and “Stranger Things” continue this trend of diversity.

“Riding Shotgun” opens with Bonnie McKee’s high pitched vocals and then falls into a pop tropical drop. Many of the producer’s recent tracks have leaned pop over electronic, but “Riding Shotgun” has groovy chords and an extended electronic drop while McKee’s catchy vocals are the glue that will appeal to pop lovers.

For his next release titled “Stranger Things,” Kygo partnered with OneRepublic, and the high profile collaboration is almost certainly going to be a radio sensation. The production elements of this track are very subtle with piano and a steady drum beat serving as the backbone of the track while OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder vocals are the focal point.

John Newman and OneRepublic are not new to collaborating with electronic music producers, having previously worked with Calvin Harris and Alesso, respectively. As Kygo continues to roll out tracks ahead of Kids In Love‘s release, it will be interesting to see who else the producer is collaborating with.
