Martin Garrix Partners with Macklemore and Fall Out Boy in “Summer Days”
The unique collab makes for a perfect summer track

Sometimes unexpected collaborations with artists of different genres end up being a stroke of genius. Other times, it falls flat on its face. Luckily for fans of Martin Garrix, the partnership between him, Macklemore and Fall Out Boy is more like a stroke of genius than a fall.

Titled “Summer Days”, the trio’s union utilizes each of their unique strengths to create a beach-friendly track. Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump impressive vocals lend perfectly to Garrix’s production. Meanwhile, Macklemore’s distinctive rap adds an edgy appeal to the top-down, cruising down the highway record.

Eric Prydz Remixes Camelphat & Christoph’s “Breathe” 
The already perfect track is made even more perfect

On track to becoming one of the biggest songs of 2019, the collaboration of Camelphat and Christoph in “Breathe” has been remixed by Eric Prydz. The house groove is driven by a crazy synth rhythm that blends the house and techno genres seamlessly. The sultry vocals provided by Jem Cooke start off low and eventually cry out alongside the track’s powerful climax.

Eric Prydz’s take on the already perfect track doesn’t change the song, instead, he turns it inside out. Prydz more than doubles the length of the record, pumping some techno while keeping Cooke’s soulful vocals. It is made even more perfect as it becomes a broody, ambient production.
