Axwell has brought his fans an extra treat for Halloween festivities, remixing Halsey‘s recent hit single “Graveyard.” The original track is the New Jersey-born artists’ 15th career Hot 100-charting release, having already topped 100 million streams after a mid-September 2019 release.
Now, the Swedish House Mafia & Axwell / Ingrosso member has given the track a rework that will not only push its success, but also help celebrate the spookiest day of the year. While the “Graveyard” title is relevant to the day, Axwell’s edit is dark and spooky in its own right. The famed producer pitches the original vocal way down, layering the sample over a rapid tempo with off-beat electronics and distorted synths on the drop. Expect to hear this one at any Halloween warehouse endeavor.
Halsey’s upcoming album Manic is set for a January 17, 2020 release, with her having recently performed “Graveyard” single on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. For Axwell, this is the second official remix since debuting his first in over half a decade for Martin Solveig and Jax Jones. His Swedish House Mafia crew also hinted at a US tour back in August, so stay tuned for more news on their return.
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.
Having mastered the art of infectious house beats, English producer Jax Jones continues to explore his collaborative penchant for songstress vocals in his newest track, “Jacques.” Engineering dance-floor hits like “Breathe” with Ina Wroldsen, “Instruction” with Demi Lovato, and “You Don’t Know Me” with RAYE, his latest single taps Swedish pop queen Tove Lo for a sultry club-steamer. “Jacques” will be featured on both Jones’ and Tove Lo’s respective album releases—Jones’ debut studio album Snacks (Supersize) due Sept. 6 and Tove Lo’s forthcoming album Sunshine Kitty due Sept. 20.
Flirtatious and seductive, “Jacques” weaves cheeky lyrics about a club fling into a minimalist production embellished by syncopated low synths and French one-liners. Designed with rhythmic ease and catchy vocals, the track combines Jax Jones’ signature house sound with Tove Lo’s party-girl persona into a delectable guilty-pleasure track.
Tove Lo has linked up with English producer Jax Jones for a new song, “Jacques.” Interestingly enough, the song is featured on both Jones’ upcoming debut album, ‘SNACKS’, and on Tove Lo’s new album, Sunshine Kitty, both of which are due out next month. From Tove Lo’s, we’ve heard “Bad As The Boys” … More »
It’s a rare occurrence when Axwell presents original music, let alone an official remix but when those moments do arrive, they should not be taken for granted. While the Swedish House Mafia member has undoubtedly shifted his priorities towards the supergroup’s reunion efforts, he has still managed to find some alone time in the studio. For the first time since his notorious progressive rework of Hook N Sling’s “Tokyo By Night” in 2014 (excluding any “cuts” or “remodes”), the phrase “Axwell remix” has re-entered the conversation.
Earlier this year, Martin Solveig and Jax Jones announced the formation of new duo project, Europa, and debuted their inaugural joint single “All Day and All Night” alongside songstress Madison Beer. The Axtone boss has now delivered a spin capped by a heavier club essence than the original cut, as Axwell stretches his streak of more conventional house-leaning productions. With Swedish House Mafia slated to appear at Tinderbox Festival this weekend in Denmark, the remix would serve as a welcomed pivot from the trio’s setlist of classics.
