The Chainsmokers Feat. Great Good Fine Ok – ‘Let You Go’ (A-Trak Remix)
Throughout the years of his illustrious career, A-Trak has established himself as a master of the remix. The scratch master has brought his unmistakable electro and hip-hop influenced sounds to tracks like the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s “Heads Will Roll” (which has not only become an A-Trak classic, but an anthem of the dance music scene) and Martin Solveig’s “The Night Out,” as he’s shown time and time again that he’s just as skilled in the studio as he is on the decks.
Now, he’s set his sights on the single from The Chainsmokers and Brooklyn-based electro-pop group Great Good Fine Ok, "Let You Go." The Fool’s Gold Records leader goes the trap route on this one, remaining true to the original track’s heartfelt melody while slowing down the tempo, before bringing in a grinding, electro-infused trap drop. Stream the track above.
The Chainsmokers' single, which is now available on iTunes via Dim Mak Records, sees the group once again venturing outside the realm of EDM for their collaborations. Their union with the fellow-New Yorker group Great Good Fine Ok represents The Chainsmokers’ unique plan of attack. They could very easily collaborate with some of EDM’s biggest names. However, they go the indie route, seeking out the names of artists they admire. This much is evident from their recent collaboration with Bullysongs, “Good Intentions.” This track, like most of their other studio creations, brilliantly represents their ability to produce tracks that border on the sound that dance music fans crave while embracing innovation and indie sensibilities. It’s certainly been a winning combination thus far.
