One of the hottest songs of the year is Lean On by Diplo project Major Lazer and DJ Snake. The record reached double platinum in Australia and the album, Peace Is The Mission, recently topped the Billboard dance/electronic category. Jimmy Fallon boldly called Lean On the tentative song of the summer. The song reached global success due to a combination of a laid back but funky melody and contagious vocals.
Moombahton cornerstone Dillon Francis took to this summer anthem with his signature trappy sounds, and even upon first listen any Francis fan will be able to taste his influence. Up-and-coming producer Jauz (aka Sam Vogel), who doesn’t like to confine himself within the bounds of a genre, gave this track a unique and fresh twist that makes the song even more infectious.
The song was good as it was, but the beauty of a remix is the unexpected. With Lean On gracing EDM radio stations every 5 minutes, it became commonplace (and inescapable), but this remix is the makeover the song needed to keep listeners excited.
