LA Duo DJDS Made The Best "Hello" Remix On The Internet
premiering Adele - "Hello" (DJDS Acid Mix)
Ever since Adele dropped her world-beating single "Hello" at the end of October, the Internet has run amok with all sorts of takes on the track, whether it's a Korean high schooler's mind-boggling cover, or Rick Ross releasing an unexpected but effective remix. But until now, we had yet to come across the definitive dance remix of the track, which is where electronic duo DJDS (formerly DJ Dodger Stadium) come in. A collaboration between producers Samo Sound Boy and Jerome LOL, DJDS are set to release their second album, Stand Up and Speak, on their Body High imprint, a collection of punchy, metallic dance music that uses lyrics to deliver an emotional sucker punch. That made "Hello" a natural fit for them, and they managed to retain that song's heart-swelling dramatics while transforming it into an all-out banger. Find out how and why they did it below, and then press play.
What were your initial impressions when you first heard Hello?
We just really loved how minimal it was. Just a beautiful piano and Adele's insanely powerful voice. Having not heard any new material from her in a while, "Hello" felt like real statement of her return.
Do her eyes look red ? That's really weird.
