David Guetta and Sia release Remixes EP for 'Flames'

MUMBAI: It was a month ago, when the billion dollar streams duo, David Guetta and Sia, reunited once again on their latest track Flames. After acquiring more than 40 million streams and the release of an official music video, it is now time for the Remixes EP.

The Remixes EP offers reworks from Guetta himself, Tepr, Pink Panda, Sylvian Armand and Vladimir Cauchemar as well as an extended mix.

 Guetta’s own remix has been a key fixture in his recent sets and takes the track into a more pointedly Euphoric direction, with Sia’s glorious vocal it is made for big rooms, arenas, festivals and beaches.

 French electro house hero Tepr brings his crisp, sharp sound to his remix, with a chunky bass melody interacting beautifully with the vocal and driving synth blasts layered over the top to make for a rousing crescendo. Ed Banger Records signing Vladimir Cauchemar creates a dramatic version with darkly-tinged melodies, thumping kicks; break beat rhythms and dashes of slap bass and cowbells for a good measure of funk.

 Bouncy, fist-pumping piano house is the name of the game for UK act Pink Panda, who concoct a brilliantly succinct version driven by big chords, skipping ‘90s house/garage percussion and plump bass throbs. Swedish newcomer Sylvain Armanda impressed with his remix of Guetta and Martin Garrix’s So Far Away recently, and this heavily-swung remix is similarly killer, with changes in tempo giving a real sense of dynamism while throbbing bass and warped vocal cuts create a dark feel.

 Flames has currently amassed over 40 streams, while the music video is close to reaching 5 million views. With Rolling Stone calling the track inspirational, Paper magazine stating its pop perfection and naming Sia and Guetta’s musical connection unwavering, the track was well received by the press. Flames is the follow up to the platinum-selling, Grammy nominated artists’ previous monster collaborations Titanium, Bang My Head and She Wolf.
