NYC's Mickey Valen, also known as the production side of one of our 2014 'Artists to Watch' AYER, has just put out a remix of Lorde's Team that's a prime example of a remix done right. He's smartly taken the edge off the track — with the playful vocals, melodic piano chords, and aptly paired handclaps all coming together to create a bright take on the underlying weight of the original. By capturing the lyrical intent and wrapping it up in a cloak of warm indie dance vibes, the tone has been transformed into one of uplifting optimism. Pick yourself up a copy now.
