Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
Chuckie and Debris prime GATTÜSO and Damon Sharpe‘s “When In Rome” for club play in a brand new remix that overturns the mellow technics of the breezy original. Chuckie and Debris alter the listening experience by swapping out the minimalistic guitar chords of GATTÜSO and Sharpe’s laidback collaboration for swelling ascents and descents.
Punchy synth work and soaring melodies enable the drop driven revamp to take on a Main Stage personality. The high-octane execution is precisely what Debris, who said he set out to “make a festival slammer,” envisioned upon hearing the original.
