Listen to A-Trak’s bold remix of Phantogram’s ‘You Don’t Get Me High Anymore’
Remixing a hit song is sometimes not as straightforward a process as it may seem. Producers are often criticized for “ruining” classics, as it’s difficult to infuse their ideas into the original without damaging its core essence.
However, the story is quite different with A-Trak’s recent remix of Phantogram’s hit single, “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore.” The famed turntablist has reaffirmed his skill as a producer, managing to achieve the fragile balance necessary to leave his unique mark on the song without destroying its fundamental character. Leaving the original vocals virtually untouched, A-Trak has added a sequence of sharp yet tasteful chords and a thick kick, giving the track a healthy, rhythmic pulse. The rap vocals in the interlude add a brash and quirky dimension to the song, paving the way for a finely executed remix.
