Prepare for sunnier days ahead with the remix package of FAUL & WAD vs Avalanche City‘s hit “I Need You” from German electronica imprint TONSPIEL. Featuring three renditions of the much-loved track, the remix package has something for every sonic preference. First up is David Puentez and MTS’s version of the track, which is digital and dreamy in its opening and danceable and uplifting in the breakdown, making for an automatic music festival hit this summer. Matty Menck and Basti M’s take on “I Need You” delivers minimal vocals, with the attention on the driving and groovy bassline for a more underground-appropriate version of the track. Finally, KLYMVX turns up the funk with his bubbly, futuresque house remix. While it’s sometimes difficult to remix an already amazing tune, all three of these remixes deliver their own carefully mastered vibes while keeping elements of the original intact. Press play on this bundle and prepare to feel like summer is right around the corner.
FAUL & WAD first made waves with their 2013 hit “Changes,” when they made a tropical house track before the genre’s mainstream popularity. Dave Baxter is the indie-folk musician behind Avalanche City, best known for his New Zealand No. 1 single “Love, Love, Love” and his 2015 single “Inside Out.” When the French producers teamed up with the New Zealand singer to create “I Need You,” they could not have anticipated the reactions the romantic, uplifting and breezy electronic ballad would invoke from fans. “I Need You” was heavily supported by artists including Robin Schulz, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Plastik Funk, and has currently amassed over 1.9 million plays on Spotify. The track is a feel-good tune to sing in the shower or play on the beach, and now fans get three extra doses of “I Need You” in the remix package. German label WePlay/Tonspiel has released the remix package, which highlights several of their most promising talents: David Puentez, MTS, Matty Menck, Basti M and KLYMVX. Keep an ear out for more music from this forward-thinking, exciting imprint very soon!
