WGTC Premiere: Afrojack – “Hey” (Matisse & Sadko Remix)


Following up on the preview of their theme song for the Ice Hockey World Championship, EDM production duo Matisse & Sadko have returned to drop a fresh new remix of Fais and Afrojack’s “Hey.” Afrojack took on the task of producing the soulful dance ballad earlier this year, serving as a featured artist on the debut release of vocalist Fais.

The original version of “Hey” featured emotive crooning and an uplifting dancefloor vibe, and Matisse & Sadko have taken on the challenge of transforming the gentle dance pop song into a soaring anthem. The duo preserves the pristine vocals from Fais throughout their remix, restraining their electrifying approach to producing to allow the energy to slowly rise to its peak.

Matisse & Sadko then introduce their signature uplifting synth melodies in the drops, delivering a huge sound that will have an explosive effect on the dance crowds. All in all, their take on “Hey” proves a worthy re-imagining that truly brings the original song to new heights.
