Earlier today, The Chainsmokers dropped their remix of Life of Dillon’s “Overload.” Continuing on from the excellent “Good Intentions,” the NYC duo have impressed us once again, bringing down the tempo of the original track just a bit and giving it more of a chilled-out summer-y vibe, which compliments it very well.
Though “Overload” is a great song in its own right, Alex and Drew have delivered an exciting new take on it. Their remix gives the track more emotion and the new tempo seems to mesh with the vocals perfectly. In short, this marks yet another solid release from The Chainsmokers and has us looking forward to seeing what they put out next.
As usual, the release also came with a message from the boys, which you can read below.
We remember the day our manager came into our studio aka drew’s living room apartment to show us this new band he was going to co-manager and sign to disruptor. The first record he played us was this tune Overload and we were hooked! We had never heard of them before but we proceeded to listen to 10 more songs of theirs and we were blown away. Their sound was so refreshing from the instruments to their vocals. There was a summertime quality to all their music that couldn’t be denied.
Flash forward a couple months and we had the chance to meet them in LA. We proceeded to do what any dudes meeting for the first time would do, we through a mansion party at a buddies got totally blackout and missed the call time for what was our Let You Go music video. Flash even more forward and Overload is taking over top40 and they are about to drop their next single Dreams! The boys were cool enough to let us take a shot a remixing overload and putting our touch on it. The song itself is already just so amazing and vibey… its like drinking coconut water on a beach while getting a foot rub and someone somewhere else transferring large sums of money into your bank acct. SO we figured why change that and just change the foot rub to a back massage and money to a kiss from a chick you really are into but didn’t know she was also into you…. So without further adieu… our remix of Overload!
Quickie From US: “So LOD is our fucking brothers you see… these dudes are total gems! Mark our words these guys are going to be absolutely massive by the end of the summer and we are proud to be their friends and supporters”
