We’re all strongly familiar with the tremendous Swedish House Mafia remix on Coldplay’s essential 2011 contender, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, that was unveiled a few months back. As the pop-rock foursome from London just released the new Paradise single in anticipation for the release of Coldplay’s fifth studio album on October 24th, we can hereby shed light on a sneak peak of the next club-adapted take on the highly-celebrated group. Courtesy of the floating of a certain live-recorded video from Fedde Le Grand himself test-driving the new remix at Space, Ibiza a while back, the chord progression of the well-renowned Dutchman’s interpretition is leaving us eager in the wait for another uptempo remix on Coldplay as the Swede’s offering is yet to be released. Fedde, that is mainly recognized for being a firm headliner of countless festival’s this year and the label head of one of the more successful release platform’s of 2011 – Flamingo, is the one responsible for some of 2011’s most peerless single anthem’s – Autosave, Running, Metrum and So Much Love included. Also having the Freaky collaboration with Nicky Romero coming up and a couple of extraordinary remixes of Never Will Be Mine and Soundtracks and Comebacks behind him, the Utrecht-bred DJ and producer returns to remix one of this century’s most prestigious quartet, bringing out the sounds of electronic dance music to the global music scene again.
It certainly does seem Coldplay, or atleast their management, have a thing for the fist-pumping chords of ”house” and club music as not only are they bringing aboard both Swedish House Mafia and Fedde Le Grand to headline their unprecedented original’s into the history books, but also have announced the one and only Tiësto has laid his hands on his own package of remix stems for an official take. However, the first sample of Fedde Le Grand’s remix has now touched ground, not consisting of the regular characteristics of the Hollander but a more progressive catchiness to it. It’s set for release on October 17th via Toolroom Records, have a listen!
