Hotel Garuda, the duo who’s been blowing up the house scene between their high profile remixes and placements at festivals like Splash House and Electric Daisy Carnival, is once again staking their claim. This time, it’s on your Best of Summer 2016 playlist on Spotify with their take on Kaskade and Felix Cartal‘s “Fakin’ It.”
The remix, which showcases many of the elements found in past Hotel Garuda productions like throbbing basslines, playful vocal chops, and injections of atmospheric builds which proliferate feels, is a summer anthem. Displaying masterful execution of taste and youthful relevance, the remix makes exquisite use of indie pop superstar Ofelia K‘s wonderful vocals: a move which not only adds bushels of charm into the work at hand, but recalls and builds upon one of the key ingredients which makes their remixes so compelling to begin with (i.e. their ability to really let gorgeous vocal talent shine).
Honestly, this is another drop in the proverbial bucket for them. Seeing as what they’ve accomplished so far is hit after hit, Hotel Garuda is clearly on a roll with no clear signs of slowing down any time soon. But what’s truly astonishing about the duo is they don’t show any semblance of wear or tear. Conversely, there only seems to be improvement and extra levels of finesse. And that’s with eachÂ release.Â So, with another notch on the ol’ belt, the real question we have is, “What’s next?”
