NONONO - Pumpin' Blood (The Chainsmokers Remix)


It's rare for an artist to produce a remix that surpasses the original, but The Chainsmokers have made a habit of doing so. Even with their impressive track record of revamped house anthems, their version of NONONO's Pumpin' Blood raises the bar. It especially stands out among a number of attempted remixes by other EDM artists who only managed to layer your typical thumping, yet boring beat over virtually the same song. While the indie original is a light-hearted sing-songy jam with a whistle refrain that I'm surprised has not yet been featured on an iTunes commercial, the Chainsmokers take introduces a distinctly darker vibe. With the piano chords building into incendiary melodic synths and a trap infused beat, this song will make you want to get off your feat, as any good house track should. All the while the original lyrics and melody remain largely untouched over the electronic brilliance beneath. The result is a party jam for sure.
