Not too long ago we had the pleasure of talking with Carousel at their show in Denver. Amongst other things, we of course discussed our favorite song of theirs, “Stay Awake.” The electro-pop single off of their upcoming EP has quickly become a favorite here at TMN headquarters.
Chicago based producer DotEXE recently reached out to Carousel to put his own take on “Stay Awake.” Jackson’s dreamy vocals and the soft electronic undertones make a perfect backdrop for a dubstep remix, and that’s exactly what DotEXE has created. Elements of the original song shine though the build providing a melodic experience. But, DotEXE puts his signature style all over this remix with an absolutely devastating drop, and masterful vocal sampling.
