"Is it Real, Real, Real, Real Love?"

Staying true to form, The Chainsmokers are back on the grind remixing that favorite song of yours that you didn't even know was your favorite song until you heard them remix it. For those of you who don't know much about Clean Bandit, their debut studio album New Eyes was off the leash. Generally you lead off your album with one of your best tracks and I can see why Real Love was the song that they chose...

While the original is a swanky, symphonic groove, the remix takes a different path toward a much more mellow sounding track. After a few listens, the melodic, bouncy synths are what I'll remember about the remix. It's a palpable departure tempo wise from the original, which changes the uplifting tone into a much more soothing vibe. I'll say it again, a big part of the allure of The Chainsmokers is their experimentation with tempos and EDM styles. Sure, they've opened my eyes to a whole arena of music I hadn't previously been privy to, but they also do it in a way invites you to expect the unexpected. Now, if they'd only collaborate with Kygo...#Catfished
