Who says only one artist can remix a track at a time? Stray Echo has teamed up with close friend Charlie Klarsfield to work on this exclusive remix of X Ambassadors' track "Renegades" (listen to the original here).
I'll forgive you if you listened to the remix and didn't recognise the original. A Mumford & Sons-esque offering of stompy indie folk, the new version couldn't be more different -- and I love it. A huge beat, big 80s new wave synths, and a complete structural reworking have transformed this track into something unrecognizable.
In my opinion, this is so much more enjoyable. It's exciting, it's nostalgic (but not annoyingly so), it's making me want to dance.
The remix features on a brand new release full of reworkings of the platinum-selling single. Alongside Stray Echo and Charlie Klarsfield will be remixes from Ra Ra Riot, the Knocks, Big Data, and more.
