Maroon 5’s “Sugar

Producer/DJ Matt Medved has flipped Maroon 5’s feel-good hit "Sugar" into a funk-filled house production piloted by a clubby groove.

Exclusive Premiere: Sicarii's Surgical Remix of SomeKindaWonderful's 'Reverse'

The remix's filtered piano chords are calmly conducted by the song’s punchy bassline, making for a modish beat. Listen below:

According to Medved -- formerly known as Sicarii -- the blueprint of the remix was inspired by the music he heard at a Bohemian beach bar in Ibiza.

"I channeled that vibe on what was originally intended as an original track,” he says. "But when Interscope gave me the opportunity to remix Maroon 5’s 'Sugar,' I realized how well Adam Levine’s vocals fit within what I’d made."

The official Interscope release has received support from Maroon 5 themselves and is currently available as a free download.

Medved debuted the record at the Billboard Hot 100 Festival this summer, performing alongside superstar acts The WeekndNicki Minaj Skrillex and more. Listen below:
