Ruff continues the momentum of his globally adored track ‘Reasons’ with the announcement of a 4-track remix pack courtesy of industry specialists and competition winners alike. The March-release of his hit single ‘Reasons’, alongside American Idol finalist Robbie Rosen and Mercedes, has been enjoyed over 75,000 times with a tastefully re-worked acoustic version following in its footsteps last month. Now calling upon some of the freshest talents in the scene, Ruff unveils the next chapter in the ‘Reasons’ saga. ‘Reasons: The Remixes’ is available now across all streaming platforms via The Dawg House.
First to appear on the remix compilation are Leondis and Wyle who offer a downtempo chill/pop edit with subtle live-band inspired instrumentation, which builds to reveal a strikingly euphoric drop to support the chorus. The energy is contagious throughout, offering a harmonious blend of emotive riffs beneath the original’s endearing vocal line. RENN is next up for remix duty and the first of the competition winners to make his mark. RENN transforms the pop ballad into an electronic haven with a solid bassline, breathing new life into its counterpart. His perspective is a refreshing take on the original, employing futuristic vocals and an explosion of high octane syths, which makes it the perfect addition to any summer playlist.
French native GSPR indulges in an atmospheric approach to ‘Reasons’ with a radio-ready drop that will get your heart pumping. Honing in on his craft, GSPR delivers an alluring version that highlights its soothing chord progression, and will no doubt have listeners singing along at the top of their lungs. Finally, Californian based producer Masso concludes the pack with an elegant yet heart-warming edit, which carries the spirit of its predecessor. Capitalising on the emotive nature of the track, Masso perfectly rounds out the collection with another unique and personalised take on the original.
