Shape of You was Ed Sheeran’s offering to the tropical house scene. With synth melodies similar to that of Sia’s Cheap Thrills, it was a song destined to make its way to club nights, discos and more. Now, the number one single has been given a fresh new burst of house in a remix by the Dutch DJ and producer, Jack Wins.
Jack’s style has always seen him introduce vibrant piano chords into his releases, and this remix is no different. Once again, he maintains Sheeran’s original vocals, with the true transformation coming with the deep house undertones. It’s still the same old Ed, but with a completely different vibe – a balance which a great remix should always aim to achieve.
With his growing list of high-profile remixes getting played by radio stations and fellows DJs alike, Jack Wins’ remix of Shape of You comes at a time where there’s a lot of excitement around Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album. Good timing and the fact that it is a refreshing remix means it’s likely to get a lot of people’s attention.
