DJ Snake‘s “A Different Way” featuring Lauv is a certified hit. It has reached no. 11 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Chart, and its music video captures the imagination with a cool dance routine as international as its worldly composer. It’s a beat that feels fun and familiar all at once, pulling from Caribbean, American urban and Middle Eastern influences. – but where else can it be taken?
A new remix package features two distinct takes on the radio anthem, both darker takes than the original, each coming correct with different vibes and styles. ETC!ETC! and Bro Safari turn the lights down and bring the trap house to the club with their synth-heavy R&B take. It’s sensual and haunting, with a hefty dose of hip-shaking dancehall. It certainly shows a different side of the familiar anthem.
If you’re looking for something more upbeat, check out NOIZU’s fresh house take. It retains some of the tropical flair of the original but ups the tempo and amps the beat with head-knockin’ house rhythms and a bassy, almost G-house hook that checks all the right boxes.
Both the ETC!ETC! and Bro Safari, and NOIZU remixes are out now on Geffen / UMG Recordings. Listen to each version below.
