Vibrant, playful and worldly dance duo Sofi Tukker can seemingly do no wrong. In three years, the duo has been nominated for two Grammys, including best electronic album for its 2018 debut LP Treehouse. In 2019, the group looks toward a brilliant future with a shimmering shift in sound, a brightness led by recent single “Fastasy.” It’s a blissful vocal tune with legs on trance and house dance floors, and when it came to the remix, Sofi Tukker went straight to R3hab, the remix king.
The original is a little bit spacey and deliciously dreamy, but R3hab’s remix is a bass-boosted beat machine designed to get your blood pumping. His take is still starry-eyed and wondrous, but it’s got a heftier rhythm and punchier electronic textures. Sofi’s voice still drifts intact, so as to keep the song’s underlying soul.
R3hab’s “Fantasy” remix drops between Sofi Tukker’s back-to-back weekends at Coachella. The duo is scheduled to appear at a few festivals this summer, including Hangout Fest in May and Osheaga Music & Arts Festival in August. R3hab is scheduled for dates throughout the States, Europe and Asia. Listen to his remix of “Fantasy” below.
