Fresh off the inaugural Mad Decent Boat Party, Toronto's Grandtheft claims the throne as the remix maestro of 2014 with his latest, "Hereos" by Alesso featuring Tove Lo.
Grandtheft takes the sultry vocals of critically acclaimed Swedish singer/songwriter Tove Lo and infuses his signature 808 sound with a thumping bassline and Alesso's powerful synths, turing the progressive house anthem into a euphoric late night banger.
"Tove Lo has an amazing voice.. Her melody and lyrics on "Heroes" were a cool starting point for me on the remix. I set out to maintain the massiveness of Alesso's original but used filtered analog synth chords and off-kilter rap drums to color a different emotion. It's been a vibey addition to my DJ sets this past week! Excited for people to hear this one."
