STEVE AOKI and NICKY ROMERO featuring KIIARA, “Be Somebody” (Modern Machines remix) (free DL)
I like it when a remix adds some pizzazz that was missing or different in the original, which then helps the song move along at a brisk pace for clubland. Dimitry Mak, aka Modern Machines, has done exactly that with his free download of “Be Somebody” by the fiery collaboration of Steve Aoki, Nicky Romero and vocalist Kiiara. All you need to hear are the thirty seconds that start just before the first minute and add a wild mix of buzzing synths and other effects combined with huge beats. The smooth mixing allows it to all happily intersect with the rest of the song and make it shine for the dance floor. “Be Somebody” doesn’t lose any pacing as it slows down and rebuilds to what ends up as a more anthemic flavour that closes out the fun. Definitely catch Modern Machines’ remix of “Be Somebody” and have a blast with it while it’s available for free at the link above.
