The Chainsmokers Drop 'Side Effects' Remixes From Fedde Le Grand and More: Listen

Danilo Lewis
The Chainsmokers

Sitting pretty at No. 7 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart is The Chainsmokers' latest single "Side Effects." It's one of the title tracks from the duo's recent EP, and it sees the "Closer" producers take on a more club-ready sound than recent dance-pop hits. That dance floor feeling inspired five producer to give it even dancier remixes in a package that just dropped on Disruptor.

The original is a strut-beat house-pop track that hits peak cool as Emily Warren speak-sings a self-degrading mantra. The remix package takes that late-night vibe and turns it up with bright soul, moody bass, clubby house and more. 

It starts with a clapper from Dutch house favorite Fedde Le Grand. He pumps up the jam with neon vibes perfect for catwalking in the club. The Magician cools on a down-tempo bass rumble, and Nolan Van lith toes the line with a hyper bpm tempered by half-time beats. It's like dubstep if the drop were carried by synths. Barkley rides a chill house wave to its bass-driven crest, and Sly finished the five-track package with a moody house club take. 

Whatever feel you're lookin' to cop, there's a splash of nocturnal color on the menu. Listen to the full "Side Effects" remix package below.
