I probably missed the boat, but did Calvin Harris release the stems for Outside? Everyone and their mother have been releasing remixes of the track, and until this track I have not been able to find many that are enjoyable. Ellie Goulding is a sacred artist to me, as her incredible voice should not be touched unless one promises to handle it with care. And honestly, CHIMS did just that.
It is probably because he is Norwegian.
CHIMS’ remix starts out slow, and honestly, peacefully. Gradually he adds in laying-on-the-beach-surrounded-by-palm-trees synthwork, layering in a beautifully crafted piano melody that makes me feel like all is right in the world. This is truly a summer anthem if I have ever heard one and is perfect for those lazy days filled with basking in the sun.
Ps. there’s a free DL on his Soundcloud (linked below).
