BEST NEW SONGS: SNAKEHIPS & MØ - DON'T LEAVE (THROTTLE REMIX)
London-based duo SNAKEHIPS teamed up with rising songstress MØ on their explosive new single, “Don’t Leave.” But up and coming buzzed about producer, THROTTLE has just released his dance-infused remix of the track and we’re simply obsessed. The Australian new artist works his magic by adding a wonderfully infectious and uplifting disco-feel that we’re totally obsessed with. Seriously though— you’re going to have this on repeat.
The track doesn’t mess around and gets straight down to business. The disco drenched beat kicks in at about 15 seconds in and before you know it, you’re going to be singing along with MØ’s contagious “ooh’s.” Once the chorus hit as the 1:15 mark, Throttle goes full force with bouncing synths and playful percussion while shimmering electronics continuously build until everything breaks loose at the 2:00 mark. “Ain’t nobody gonna love you better than me” MØ boldly announces over Throttle’s awesome addition of lively horns and synths that will be sure to pick you up out of your seat. Although the track is nearly 5 minutes in length, it manages to keep you going throughout its entire duration. After hearing this remix, I think it’s safe to say that THROTTLE can work his magic on on pretty much any track you give him and we’ll probably love it.
