Chromeo - “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” (Chainsmokers Remix)
The Chainsmokers certainly know their way around a remix (listen to the dance outfit’s epic transformation of Bastille‘s “Flaws”) and they completely reconstruct Chromeo‘s gem. The early ’80s-flavored jam now has an acoustic, piano-based intro before the BPM shoots through the roof and “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” transforms into a very modern sounding floorfiller.
From The Chainsmokers:
“Chromeo is one of those groups that really define a genre and time in music. For us their take on electronic music really served as a foundation for our tastes in production. Dave1’s effortless vocal work that always feel as cool as it sounds, paired with the incredible melodies and instrumentation from Gemayel these guys really crushed. So when we were contacted to remix Jealous we honestly felt like we had a song that we felt could be as big as Daft Punk’s, Get Lucky . After it was said and done, we were so happy with the remix we created. It gave the song that house dance feel, but didn’t feel forced at all. The song seemed to have this great level of space and pacing and nothing felt unnecessary. The more we produce the more its about doing more with less, and this for us nailed that theory. The song effortlessly flows like good Chromeo songs does but achieves that unique Chainsmoker energy..”
