After over half a billion plays on Spotify and YouTube and superb remixes from Robin Schultz and GLOWINTHEDARK comes another huge remix of David Guetta & Justin Bieber’s landmark collaboration 2U. Norwegian trio SEEB have managed to breathe yet more life into this incredible slice of pop music.
Keeping a similar structure to the original at first, SEEB transform the hard-hitting, slo-mo feel of the original into something more fluid and uptempo. The lush beatless into build to an almost drum & bass half-step groove, driven by plump analog bass notes and skittish rhythms. The heavenly reverbs drench the cut-up vocal hook in spacious light and create a melancholy vibe that fits with the song’s yearning feel.
SEEB are well known for their wildly successful remixes of the likes of Mike Posner’s I Took A Pill In Ibiza and Coldplay’s Hymn For The Weekend which alone have picked up more than 2 billion plays. Their original productions are highly acclaimed and have marked them out as ones to watch. Now with their remix of two of the world’s biggest recording artists, they reach yet another milestone.
Still going strong, 2U can undoubtedly be labeled as one of summer 2017’s soundtracks and beyond. With 350 million streams, 450 thousand downloads and 210 million views, the track peaked at #3 on Spotify worldwide and #1 on iTunes in 78 countries. It has acclaimed various certifications including 2 times platinum in Norway and Sweden, platinum in The Netherlands, Brazil, Ireland, Finland and Australia and gold in the UK, France, Italy, New Zealand, Columbia, Belgium, Denmark, the USA, Germany and Portugal.
