Dance floor magnet: @YoungBombs take “Wild” by @TroyeSivan and @AlessiaCara to a beautiful place

TROYE SIVAN x ALESSIA CARA, “Wild” (Young Bombs remix)

They’ve done it again, the red hot Canadian duo of Young Bombs have managed to transport a favourite song of mine into a totally different place than I’d expected.  The first verse and affecting vocal in the original version of “Wild” last Fall convinced me that Troye Sivan really was someone who had grown considerably and that I needed to watch, and then I saw the Blue Neighbourhood album (along with hit single “Youth”) explode and it’s still going strong.  Despite the original intent and video, “Wild” recently became a duet as a reissued single and addition to Blue Neighbourhood featuring my fellow Torontonian, Juno Award winner Alessia Cara, which totally works.  And now Young Bombs have transformed “Wild” into a dance floor magnet, with a wondrous and inspiring electronic break midway that to me says more about this version than the song or duet itself.  So you too can fall in love with it all over again, and I hope we can purchase it soon.  For now, you can listen above or stream the Young Bombs remix of “Wild” on Spotify.
