With summer coming to a close, electronic music fans can get the last taste of sunshine with Disco Fries’ latest rework of The Chainsmokers’ “Maradona” ft. Fatman Scoop. This cutting-edge track brings everything you would expect from a Disco Fries remix- eclectic synths, amazing vocal recrafting, and a contagious bassline that is sure to get listeners dancing. With the two legendary duos joining forces for the first time, in what seems like a collaboration made in heaven, Disco Fries and The Chainsmokers deliver an infectious dance single that is now available for streaming across the globe.
The Chainsmokers and Disco Fries are certainly no strangers to each other- both the New York-based electronic duos have grown side-by-side in their careers together for the last decade. Crossing paths in their hometown quite frequently over the years, the two groups decided it was finally time to collaborate on a special release together. With their close friend and past collaborative vocalist, Fatman Scoop, on the original track- Disco Fries knew “Maradona” was the perfect opportunity to join talents with The Chainsmokers. This led to an insanely catchy house tune that is on par with the Disco Fries discography, maintains the original allure created by The Chainsmokers, and even further highlights Fatman Scoops’ unmatched vocal work. Nick of Disco Fries elaborates, “We’ve been working with Fatman Scoop for over a decade now and when he told us he was going to be on a Chainsmokers record we knew we had to turn out a remix. We’re really proud of this one as it pushes into the melodic house sound that always works well in our live sets and it’s a unique take on the original record.” In the end, the Disco Fries’ rendition showcases the evolution of their production and top-tier remix skills- while also pulling together a trifecta of modern dance pioneers in the music industry.
With over 1 million monthly listeners across streaming platforms, numerous Billboard chart-toppers, and their latest remix of Viiq & Deerock’s “Half as Much” currently taking over Sirius XM’s Globalization Radio- Disco Fries have been steadfast in their career as some of dance music’s top producers since their debut in 2013. On top of their success in production, the artists’ have seen some of the world’s biggest stages in their DJ careers such as Electric Zoo and EDC Las Vegas, and have received massive support from iconic dance acts such as Kaskade, Diplo, Steve Aoki, and Hardwell. Lastly, their latest venture “Finish My Track”, introduces the industry’s first “finishing house”- in which the duo helps rising artists take their songs from 70% to retail ready. Their latest remix of “Maradona” is a perfect example of why Disco Fries are able to teach young producers how to reinvent a record and turn it into something of their own. Disco Fries close with this statement:
When we got the main idea for this mix together, we hit Chainsmokers with it and their quick response was, ‘This is F*CKIN GAS!’- so obviously we had to finish it! It’s one thing to do a remix that gets played but it’s much more rewarding to do one that the original artist really loves and co-signs. The last time we had a response like that was from Katy Perry… Alex and Drew, you’re in good company.”
