Coldplay has taken up the top club remix residence!
- Tiesto was rocking a mashup of Colplay’s ‘Fix you’ and Alesso’s remix of ‘Pressure.’
- Mike Posner recently released a dubstep remix of ‘The Scientist.’
- DJs on every level from Gabriel & Dresden to Royksopp have reworked ‘Clocks.’
- Morgan Page did a chill-out remix of ‘White Shadows’ as well.
The takeover of dance music was inevitable. Coldplay’s mainstream appeal clearly advances house music’s growing influence on dance music in America. As soon as a DJ mixes in a familiar Coldplay classic, the crowd goes wild as lead vocalist Chris Martin’s soulful voice reaches past the bass line, into the crowd.
