With the worlds festival season on hold, artists and performers have little to do but work on new music and Dutch DJ duo W&W have set their sights high by trying their hand at remixing The Weeknd‘s mega-hit “Blinding Lights.”
After introducing their adaptation of Abel Tesfaye’s #1 smash in their first extended reality virtual set in May, W&W have unexpectedly decided to give their remix an official release. Proceeding at a faster pace than their prior festival mixes, the new take sees the duo administer an interesting but appropriate dose of happy hardcore and trap.
In a statement, W&W said “We initially made this festival mix for our 20XX broadcast because we love the original. There were a lot of great reactions [to] it, so we thought let’s upload it to YouTube. When we got in the video it really hit us that we miss playing all these amazing shows SO MUCH!! This summer would have been full with crazy festivals and clubs but unfortunately for everyone we all have to wait until next summer.” Check out the incredible new twist on “Blinding Lights” and its video.
