Candide — Work Hard (AIMES Remix)
It’s been extremely exciting to see Brooklyn producer AIMES grow over the past several months, not only through wonderful remixes of everyone from Little Dragon to Röyksopp, but also a series of impressive original works that fuse disco, synth pop, and deep house to seriously please the ears. Today the Alabama native flaunts his consistency yet again, remixing fellow Brooklyn duo Candide’s latest track Work Hard into a vibrant disco anthem reminiscent of fellow synth aficionado Todd Terje, which obviously says quite a lot. The young gun has put forth a seriously untouchable bassline here, adding bells and drum hits alongside a dizzying series of synth arpeggios that weave in and out of the track to guide Candide vocalist Candice Strongwater’s words into the night. While it wouldn’t fare poorly in a dancing setting, this one channels much more intensive midnight Camaro vibes, reiterating AIMES’s versatility and obvious 80’s influences. Stream the track below and keep an eye on his tour schedule, as it's been looking quite busy as of late!
