Odesza’s long-awaited Hayden James remix is finally here
Something About You is on track to become one of the year’s biggest songs – you might recall it won the inthemix Award for Best Track just last month – so any remix of the Hayden James hit is bound to be worth a listen. But one from the hottest act in electronic music right now? Even better.
We’ve been hearing Odesza’s Something About You remix in sets for months but yesterday, the edit officially arrived – and it lives up to the hype. “When Hayden asked us if we would do a remix…we were a bit hesitant to say yes because the track is so good we didn’t want to ruin it,” Odesza’s Harrison Mills told Complex Mag. “We decided to take the remix in a completely different direction instead of trying to create some sort of neo-house version.” The new direction worked – less than 24 hours since going live, the remix already hit the #1 spot on Hype Machine.
Both Hayden James and Odesza have a spot on this year’s Listen Out line-up, playing alongside the likes of Childish Gamibno, SBTRKT and Alison Wonderland. This year’s Listen Out tour kicks off in Melbourne on September 26, hitting Perth, Sydney and Brisbane from there.
