Moving through 2020 with significant momentum, Martin Garrix unveils his latest pop collaboration “Drown” with Clinton Kane and the collaboration has already received stellar support from fellow club culture artists.
At first listen, the RCA Records-released effort hears the two musicians blending their respective sounds: Garrix with the lighthearted EDM production, and Kane contributing sweet vocals “Tell me lies, tell me painted truths/ Anything at all, to keep me close to you/ Pull me under, the way you do/ Tonight, I wanna drown in an ocean of you.” The underlying composition blooms from an instrumentally-driven accompaniment to a synth-assisted drop worthy of many different applications. To add fuel to the fire, effective April 17th, “Drown” receives several remixes.
Coming by way of EDM heavyweights The Subculture, Nicky Romero, Alle Farben and Matroda, the new takes present a wide range of dance floor and festival main stage appeal. Check out all four remixes of Martin Garrix and Clinton Kane’s “Drown” below.
The first alternate edition mixes a classic house 4×4 beat with the original vocals that stay intact throughout. The uptempo recording creates unending energy that is hard to not get up and dance with. The next take is driven by epic keys that morph into a light-hearted and jubilant drop, propelling the song ever-forward. Nicky Romero took a very different approach with his turn, electing to put a spotlight on the lyrics via use of minimal synths. The song then crescendos into a piece that would be worthy of any world-renowned festival. Croatian-based Matroda also took a new path, putting the most emphasis on the production while adding just enough of the original vocals to make it recognizable to listeners.
