Netsky And Macklemore Team Up To Remix “Rio”


Netsky has delivered a new remix of his song “Rio,” enlisting the help of rapper Macklemore and co-producers Digital Farm Animals. “Rio” served as the lead single of Netsky’s recently released third studio album III, and the producer is slated to head off to Rio de Janeiro to serve as a musical ambassador for the Belgian Team at the Summer Olympics.

The new remix of “Rio” is nearly identical to the original version, save for the inclusion of a rap verse courtesy of Macklemore. As one of the strongest cuts off III, the new take on the track is a welcome addition, despite being closer to a vocal edit than a proper remix. Fans of Macklemore will certainly appreciate his efforts here as well, and his inclusion definitely increases the song’s marquee value.

“Rio” featuring Macklemore debuted over the weekend on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, and we suspect Netsky will be playing it in heavy rotation while acting as musical ambassador at the Summer Olympics.
