Diplo and Skrillex's collaborative single "Where Are Ü Now" as Jack Ü' also featuring Justin Bieber continues to make waves worldwide letting both artists step into the pop world like never before.
Well today we get to hear an unexpected remix of the song which uses the acoustic cover version of the song from Ember Island as the base. Flaxo, a TSIS regular who's brought us remixes of Bingo Players "Knock You Out" and Yellow Claw's "Shotgun" has stepped up to the plate. He layers in new melodies, exciting percussion elements and a guitar and horn filled drop that make just enough room for Ember Island's vocals to lay on top perfectly. Stream the premiere of the song below and grab a free download. Enjoy!
Here are some words from Flaxo himself on the remix
""I stumbled on this Ember Island cover of the Jack U/Bieber collab Where Are U Now and fell in love instantly. I've been experimenting with some different rhythmic formats and different instrumental styles that incorporated some more organic drumming and basslines with more "synthetic" stuff and when this fell on my lap I thought it made perfect sense to take some of the more uplifting, organic material I had written and put it together with this really vulnerable, personal vocal cut from them. It's intended for moments on a train or a bus where you forget where you are for a sec and you think back to something that happened 5 years ago."
We've also been informed Flaxo has an original EP in the works so be on the lookout.
