DAMN COLLIN MCLOUGHLIN! You just came out of nowhere and gave us Vicetone‘s beautiful track Heartbeat, next you’re blowing minds with your debut EP Tears of Tempo, and now you’re remixing Coldplay… you have left me in an excited state of anticipation swaying to this new remix wondering “what’s he gonna give us next?!”
McLoughlin takes the classic Coldplay song to a whole new level with his remix he released today. It’s a risky move remixing Fix You since the song is loved for it’s melancholy, simple, emotional lyrics – but McLoughlin managed to keep the lyrics and the feelings they evoke, and he made the song even more moving by adding soothing transitions between the vocals. McLoughlin’s soundcloud description is dead-on about the mix: “Collin takes the listener on a melodic journey, building the song steadily into a catchy glitch vocal driven drop with melodic bass swells and robotic one shots that supplement the simplicity of the verses in a unique way.” In my opinion, he took some of the best chillstep-dubstep songs and put them together with Coldplay to make an epic track.
Well done Sir, well done.
