Back in May, Australian superstar producer Flume took to his socials to show fans he was in the studio working on a remix of Eiffel 65’s 1998 classic hit, “Blue.” Not much other information was given at the time, although fans of the eccentric beatmaker immediately began anticipating the track in online message boards. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, and without any announcement from Flume or the Future Classic camp, the remix has been released as a nice mid-week surprise.
Flume released a visualizer of the “Blue” remix on YouTube and the track is also available for purchase on Beatport. The Grammy-winning producer puts his unique future bass touches on the Italian group’s globally popular record, delivering an unmistakably Flume remix with glitched-out synths, staggered percussive chops, and bass-bolstered 808s. Still, Eiffel 65’s original shines through all of Flume’s experimental touches in the song’s melody and chorus sections.
