Martin Solveig’s ”The Night Out“ is well known to the music world, its familiar beat and lyrics were a good hit. But now a couple of DJ’s have got the song by the scruff of the neck to produce their own remixes of this song. These include A-Trak, Madeon, TheFatRat, Maison and Dragen and even Solveig himself.
A-Trak is a Montreal born DJ who is pretty big on both the electro-house and hip-hop scenes; you probably know him mostly as half of Duck Sauce. From the start of this remix, it sounds very similar to the original but with a more intense main beat. The vocals are still the main body of the build ups and transitions; but then I heard the drop. A-Trak goes big and drops a very funky electro beat that really develops and gets more intense. It hits hard and works really well!
Next up is Madeon, the French wonder-kid, who you will know from his remix of Deadmau5′s “Raise Your Weapon” and his Pop Culture mash-up phenomenon, has gone more nu-disco with his take. This guy may be young, but this remix is mature and very energetic and is one that just shows what amazing talent this guy has!
Now we see Martin produce a re-work of A-Trak’s version of the song that compliments both of their styles. It incorporates the french producer’s funky original mix and then A-Trak’s raw electro style to produce a well rounded-off track.
What we weren’t expecting was TheFatRat creating a thick bass electro remix for Martin Solveig. It’s refreshing to hear some differentiation from the rest of the EP that includes pop/nu-disco versions. Definitely has the smoothest build-up, which greatly contrasts with the aggressiveness of the drop.
The final remix we have is one from Finland, two guys known as Maison and Dragen. You may know these guys because they were responsible for the instant classic ‘In The Horizon’ and they have supported big names like Tiësto and Porter Robinson. They managed to liven up the original with a funky, pumped up version that is a great, solid remix to round off our remix package.
