Marshmello has kept things interesting for fans this year, releasing everything from pop to rock to his old-school electronic style in new releases. This time, Marshmello heads in a completely new direction with his Roddy Ricch collaboration, titled “Project Dreams.” The masked producer has been teasing the collaboration online for more than a month, leaving fans wondering when the official release would come.

The track is without the electronic infusion fans have become accustomed to in Marshmello’s non-electronic collaborations, such as recent hit with Bastille, “Happier.” A subtle backdrop frames the track for Ricch’s vocals to lead the release. His rapping is the centerpiece of the track, showcasing Marshmello’s ability to produce tracks in a wide variety of genres. The Forbes 30 Under 30 winner continues to prove he cannot be put into a box, leaving fans to wonder what’s in store for the year to come.

Marshmello and Bastille pivot away from the tear-jerking story of a girl and her dog in their release of an alternate version of the “Happier” music video. What they’ve come up with is something even more uplifting, albeit, quirky. It plays out like an animated slideshow, showcasing the artists and their work on the song rather than involving a specific storyline. Marshmello can be seen playing multiple instruments as sort of a one-man band, accompanying Dan Smith as he sings along. Per the masked DJs general odd aesthetic, the video makes sure to include a number of oddities that make for a more entertaining watch; including a cameo by some floating graham crackers. Where he and his team find inspiration for such things, we’ll never know — but props to them for a colorful alternative ending!

Matt Medved is adding another high profile remix to his catalog with his new take on Marshmello and Bastille‘s smash hit, “Happier.” Closely following a grooving house remix of Khalid‘s “Love Lies,” Matt Medved has followed up with a buoyant, upbeat take on “Happier,” taking the tune from the radio waves to the dance floor with his re-visioning.

Accenting the track’s foundation with his own house-inspired theme, Medved leaves Bastille’s vocal work largely intact, working in his own infectious percussion arrangements around the track’s ubiquitous topline. Lush club-ready soundscapes supplant Marshmello’s cheerful piano chords as Medved breathes new life into his masked companion’s latest hit. Matt Medved’s remix also follows another inventive take on the track by JAUZ — who opted to offer a more downtempo perspective on one of the year’s biggest tracks. Stream Matt Medved’s remix of “Happier” below.

For more than a decade, DJ Earworm has been blending the year’s top songs into a massive “United States of Pop” mashup at the end of each year. He began the series in 2007, kicking off with a combo of songs from Soulja Boy, Akon, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Fergie, and more. It’s been 11 years since that inaugural mashup, and Earworm hasn’t slowed down in the slightest.

His 2018 edition just made its YouTube debut on December 4, highlighted by tracks from Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Zedd, Childish Gambino, Marshmello, and more. The four-minute mashup kicks off with songs from Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, and Maroon 5 and Cardi B, before cycling through Drake‘s iconic “In My Feelings,” Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse,” Travis Scott and Drake’s “Sicko Mode,” and dozens others.

Jauz has remixed Marshmello‘s hit collaboration with Bastille, “Happier,” almost entirely transforming the track, with the exception of Bastille’s vocal work. The Bite This helmer has made the track his own with a moody, albeit equally addicting, new take on Marshmello’s chart-topping hit.

Hushed vocals creep over chopping drums that serve as the backbone of the release. The original electronic notes are drawn out, with the tempo dramatically altered to suit JAUZ’s take on “Happier.” Bastille’s vocals are still a focal point for the track, with the emphasis on the opening lyrics as opposed to the catchy melody that hooks the listener in the original.
