Alesso – Years (Hard Rock Sofa Remix)
Almost a full year after Alesso previewed what would become one of the biggest tunes of 2012, “Years” has been revived this week with a remix from Hard Rock Sofa. The Russian remix masters swapped synths for scales, building a completely new progressive house sound before inserting the original’s piano nearly three minutes in. Matthew Koma’s emotive vocals take on a new color when layered over the amped up melody, resulting in a sound a little less pretty but far more peppy than the original. Solving the problem of how to drop the track without dropping the energy, Hard Rock Sofa’s remix is sure to get festival play come spring.
