Check out Dillion Francis's new moombahton remix of Passion Pit's "Carried Away"!
A genius at remixing, Dillon takes the original song and does what Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit says is the purpose of a remix "to re-evaluate it and turn it into something new," which is exactly what Dillon does to the song while maintaining its integrity. Chopping up the vocals and creating a synth variation of the original melody, Dillon tops it all off with a grooving moobahton beat. It's the perfect combination of EDM and indie music to make a happy summer song to get everyone hyped-up for festival season and summer sunshine.
Originally created through a Sony interview/YouTube advertisement, you can watch the video bellow in which both artists talk about the process of making a remix. As Dillon says, "What I like about remixing is cross pollinating the fan base. People know Passion Pit as indi-dance music, you know... live band, so it's very interesting to bring my side and their side and push it together."
Take a listen to the remix below and watch the interview with the two artists.
