After teasing it on Instagram earlier this week, Kaskade has released his remix of Galantis’ Runaway (U & I). Seeing as this is already a fantastic song, the DJ doesn’t do a whole lot with it, but he does give the track a bit of “extra ooomph,” as he says in his Tweet:
Always tricky remixing a song that I think is perfect, and pretty much everything @wearegalantis touches rocks so this was a challenge.

…but I think I got that extra oooomph in there that will either make you vomit or jump up and down punching the air…. — Kaskade (@kaskade) October 22, 2014
After giving it a listen, you can definitely tell what Kaskade is talking about. A hard kick throughout combined with some strong energy and the twisting of chords in the chorus definitely gives the track a more pulse-pounding feel, and it works out pretty well.
Again, the core is still in tact, but there are just enough tweaks here to warrant calling it a remix and as far as Kaskade’s work goes, this ranks right up there with what he did to Lana Del Rey’s Young and Beautiful.
