Over the past two weeks I’ve been to a couple of parties, and there’s been one dance track which I love right now. At first, I wasn’t a fan of it, but as with most songs it grows on me after a while. This week’s Musical Discovery is I Took A Pill in Ibiza by Mike Posner (Seeb Remix).
Now for a lot of people, the name Mike Posner brings back memories from his dance classic, Cooler than Me. However, in this song, Posner describes his previous No.1 single as “a pop song people forgot”.
Therefore, it’s fair to say that the lyrics aren’t particularly positive – so it’s a bit bizarre to for Seeb to turn the track into an upbeat, bouncy synth anthem!
Nevertheless, the remix is both original and typical within the current dance industry. Bearing in mind we are in the middle of a tropical house craze, there’s no surprise to see a bouncyrhythm present on the song. But, that being said, the track’s main trumpet-like synth melody is certainly what makes the song stand out.
What do you think of I Took a Pill in Ibiza? Is this a good return track from Mike Posner? Comment below!
