It’s time for the third remix of Martin Garrix’s huge ‘Summer Days’collaboration with Macklemore and Patrick Stump, and this one’s for the pumping house dancefloors.
Botnek hail from Halifax, Nova Scotia in the east of Canada. They found early fame thanks to their viral remix of Garrix’s breakthrough hit ‘Animals’ and went on to become part of the DIM MAK family, featuring alongside Steve Aoki at his Las Vegas residency. They have come full circle through years of big room sounds to get back to the weird and wonderful banging house vibes that they came through with, as exemplified on this crucial rework.
The remix rockets into life with pumping drums. Slices of the vocal are cleverly filtered and looped to build the energy before the full chorus blasts in with its tense synth chords. The energy is kept high throughout, even when the arrangement is stripped to a heads-down groove. The contrast of the bassline funk and the madness of Botnek’s furious riff works so very well.
Doing a booming business with their World Famous Headquarters label and radio show, Botnek are quickly conquering the scene. This hot new remix looks set to pump their status even higher!
