Kasum has been on a hot streak in the last few months. Don’t get me wrong, ever since the up-and-coming producer/DJ unleashed his melodic dubstep remix of Smash Mouth’s “All Star” back in July, he’s been a name to watch out for in the electronic scene. But once the sophomore at BU won the spot to open for 3LAU & Carnage through his “Night Riot” mix, Kasum has been watching his dreams come true slowly but surely. Though early to say, I truly believe Kasum has quite the future ahead of him. Every remix he has dropped in the last year has been nothing short of greatness.

The Chainsmokers took on The Colourist’s “Fix This” and turned it into an electro house banger. Read what the talented NYC producers had to say about their take on “Fix This” below.
The Colourist have really unique playful vocal melodies which is what attracted to us to them the most, and we like to consider one of our bigger production strengths to be our melody work as well, so we were excited to pair the two against each other. Thus, in the production it was great to create a composition for this track that ping pong’d between their vocals and our production as we add and subtract instruments to increase the energy and emotion into a joyous wave of synths for the drop that keeps that has our signature style 🙂AND it was nice to get back to some real indie progressive house with this track….
