Download Right Now: “City of Dreams,” Jacques Lu Cont remix #DLRN

If you download one track today, it should be Jacques Lu Cont’s remix of “City Of Dreams.” Alesso, Dirty South, and Ruben Haze debuted this mega-anthem at Electric Daisy Carnival New York last year, but it still packs an emotional punch.

Super-producer Lu Cont’s take preserves the instantly recognizable vocal, but adds piano and percussion elements to give the song an extra dose of musicality; just what we’d expect that from the man who famously produced pop albums for Madonna and The Killers. The original was always a hands-in-the-air moment, rather than fist-pump, but the Thin White Duke’s version is even more laid-back.

It’s available now on iTunes & Beatport.
