Exclusive: Armand Van Helden & Vasta drop dance worthy remix of Le Youth’s ‘Clap Your Hands’
Every now and then, an artist debuts a track that stands leagues apart from other productions. Le Youth is one such artist, regularly turning heads with releases like the infectious “Clap Your Hands,” a single that doubled as a new wave of modern disco groove.
The versatile producer has established his ability to mesh nineties sounds with currently trending electronic musical elements. To say that the tune was catchy would be an understatement as the track resonated deeply with a public ready to receive a song that was both fresh in tone and unabashedly distinct in its construction.
It was only a matter of time, then, until “Clap Your Hands” was flipped by producers seeking to remix the magnetic single, and Armand Van Helden and Vasta’s take on the original has not disappointed. Together, the duo transform Le Youth and Ava Max’s original, quickening the tempo of the song in an update that amplifies the remix’s dance floor potential.
The addition of a bold piano rhythm to the single’s opening and that pulsating, funky synth sound on loop proves that Armand Van Helden and Vasta’s rework of Clap Your Hands might be better titled as “Bob Your Head” as the remix’s beat is an irresistible call to do just that.
