Alicia Keys’ delivered her comeback gem “In Common” in early May, followed by stellar performances of the song on Saturday Night Live and at the UEFA Champions League Final. Today, Kaskade released his official remix of the afro beat infused track.
Kaskade channels a signature relaxed house groove, adding in astute synth work and infectious kicks around Keys’ soothing coo. Ironically, Kaskade says he remixed “In Common” based off a tweet from one of his fans.
“I listened to the song and loved it immediately. Alicia Keys’ voice is huge in this vulnerable way. And deep house is just another spin on what she’s doing. I couldn’t help myself. I didn’t even ask for – or get – permission. I pulled the parts together myself, put them back together in my way, and sent it to her,” he wrote on his website.
