Lido Remixes Kris Wu & Travis Scott’s No. 1 single “Deserve”

Kris Wu releases two official remixes of his #1 single, “Deserve” featuring Travis Scott. Norway’s Lido and Chicago’s YehMe2 each offer their own unique rework of the groundbreaking cross-cultural collaboration. Lido uses melodic piano with his signature orchestral flourishes as build up to a percussive club drop while YehMe2 propels his house influenced mix with a four-to-the-floor feel. Released last month, the original track shot up the charts, historically making Kris Wu the first Chinese recording-artist to reach No. 1 on iTunes and racking up over 30M total streams. Listen to the remixes here and watch the music video for the original here.

 

For the official “Deserve” remixes, Kris Wu brings a fresh perspective to the track with the help of distinguished international producers, Lido and YehMe2. Norwegian producer and singer-songwriter, Lido, won a Grammy for his production work on Chance The Rapper’s Coloring Book, his production was heavily featured on Jaden Smith’s debut album, Syre, and he has been praised for his remix work with artists like The Weeknd, Banks, alt-J, Disclosure and many more. Chicago-based producer, YehMe2, came up as half of the pioneering Trap-EDM duo Flosstradamus and has earned a loyal following on SoundCloud where remixes under his new alias have racked up over 1.5M plays.

 

With over 40 million followers worldwide, Kris Wu is the Canadian-Chinese singer, producer, actor, and model at the forefront of Chinese pop culture. His numerous hits, including his 2016 debut English single “July”, and more recently “Deserve” featuring Travis Scott, helped Kris become the first Chinese artist to hit #1 on iTunes. With over 30M streams, “Deserve” was hand-picked by broadcasting giant Zane Lowe as his Beats 1 World Record and the track received a Collin Tilley directed music video which has over 14M views on YouTube. With recent profiles by i-D and CNN and recent appearances on Beats 1 with Ebro, Sneaker Shopping with Complex and Genius’ Verified, Kris Wu’s popularity in the US has reached an all time high.

 

A multi-talented superstar, Kris has acted in box-office record-breakers xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Journey To The West, and Mr. Six. Kris has also been named “Idol of the Year” by People Magazine, “Most Prominent Idol” by GQ and “Most Influential Male in Asia” by the Asian Influence Awards; he’s graced the covers of Vogue, GQ, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire in China; and he’s been the face for Burberry, McDonalds, BVLGARI, and Mecedes-Benz Smart.

 

Kris Wu is set to continue his global takeover with new groundbreaking collaborations, visuals and more.

Tropix & Oxilo Heat Up Summer with Out of Love Remix

In February of this year, Two Friends and Cosmos & Creator released “Out of Love” on Spinnin’ Records. A saxophone serenade and a chorus of “Ohs” made it an instant hit and spawned numerous remixes. Cosmos & Creator hail from Toluca Lake, a neighborhood in Los Angeles, and Two Friends (duo Matt Halper + Eli Sones) also call Los Angeles home. The LA trifecta was completed when LA resident and producer Oxilo teamed up with East Coasters Dex and Dylan, who make up Tronix, to remix “Out of Love.” Today we take a look at one of the hottest remixes of the summer that will be sure to hype up your poolside parties and light up your dj sets.

 

Oxilo’s productions range from the more melodic, chill side of bass music to trap and dubstep. In this remix for “Out of Love,” his presence and influence can be felt. The remix employs claps, a funky breakdown, and the familiar sound of Mario breaking a brick to find a coin breathes new life into the original.

The remix was officially released on July 10, 2017, and in just six days it amassed over 10,000 plays. This comes on the heels of a logo makeover and sound makeover for Dex and Dylan. The producer pair had the following to say about their relaunch:

 
“We are excited to introduce the world to our melodic future sounds, and sharing the love of music with our fans in the diaspora. We are committed to creating good feelings to identify our greatest moments together.”  

Tropix’s music is traveling the world and the pair has plans to take people on the musical journey with them. Download the Tropix and Oxilo’s “Out of Love” remix at http://bit.ly/2tMFZkm and heart on Hype Machine at http://bit.ly/2eWsBrg. Check out Tropix’s and Oxilo’s socials below.
