The ever quirky local favorites The Chainsmokers are taking the world by storm with their new single, “#SELFIE.” After hearing a preview of their track about a month ago while they swam around Lavo New York in Steve Aoki’s float during his set, it was no surprise that Dim Mak records would pick up this hysterical electro tune and produce an A+ video to match. Already having support from massive artists such as 3LAU, Adventure Club, A-Trak, Pete Tong, NERVO, who appear in the video, amongst many more, this duo is sure to blow up in 2014. Catch them on their #SELFIETOUR through April, dates to be announced soon. Check out the video for a good laugh, and get your own copy of the track here via Beatport

Icona Pop – Girlfriend (The Chainsmokers Remix) [Release]

The long awaited release of The Chainsmokers’ remix of Icona Pop’s “Girlfriend” is finally here via Atlantic/Big Beat. Add this to Alex and Drew’s list of eclectic remixes, as they have been experimenting with several genres lately. This “big room” progressive electro edit leaves us with an insatiable desire to jump around and dance. As if the feel good vibes and catchy lyrics weren’t enough, they even made an adorably funny video to go along with it. After their last mix of Banks’ “Change” made it to the top of the HypeM charts, surely this track will follow. Congratulations to the boys for making it onto this past friday’s Essential Selection hosted by Pete Tong, with their remix of “Take Me Home” by Cash Cash. Show some support and get their latest single via Beatport.

BANKS – Change (The Chainsmokers Hot & Steamy Edit) [Free Download]

BANKS CHANGE Chainsmokers Edit Cover Art
Admittedly, the Chainsmokers productions usually appeal to the EDM masses.  This time, they make up for it by sending over BANKS (prod. by Tim Anderson) – Change (The Chainsmokers Hot&Steamy Edit), a groovy deep edit that has already hit #1 on the Hypem charts. They did an amazing job taking these sultry, emotional vocals and creating a lovely deep house tune. This is definitely a change from their other tracks; no synths, no rolling buildups, just a soulful melody with the right amount of bass, and beautiful lyrics. We love their progressive mixes, and are impressed that they can diversify their work and go “one deeper” as DJ Hanzel AKA Dillion Francis would say. Keep up the good work guys! Not only does this tune kill it, but is also available as a free download. Enjoy!

Smallpools Dreaming (The Chainsmokers Remix)
