If a song lacks a certain something – or kick – then it’s usually the remixes which can fill in the gaps and breathe new life into the track. The latest example is Jack Wins’ remix of Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s Dreamer – a version which adds a punch to the underwhelming drop of the original.
It’s something proven right from the get-go. Out goes the piano melody at the start of the song, and in its place is a more immediate introduction to the first verse complete with a pronounced drum beat leading up to the chorus. At this point, Jack teases us with the various styles that all work with the original – from harsh piano stabs, to a drum-and-bass like beat, before settling on a more deep house vibe in the inevitable drop.
As the track progresses, the driving rhythm from the previous verse gets a club revamp alongside heavy bass. Whilst the initial version offers little difference between verse and chorus and shows a lack of potential with its drop, Jack Wins’ maintains the emphasis placed on Trevor Guthrie’s vocals in addition to creating something exciting and diverse to listen to every second.
It’s a remix which shows Axwell Λ Ingrosso just what they’re missing from their original version, and as such, it makes Dreamer take on a whole new vibe as if it were his own.
The remix is available to listen now on Spotify.
