Jimmy Fontaine – Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco
Panic! At The Disco has a real anthem on their hands with “High Hopes.” The believe-in-yourself track is at a peak of No. 5 on the Hot 100 this week, and you know what that means. It’s time for a club-ready remix, and future house hero Don Diablo is exactly the man for the job.
The original is a real ear-grabber. Brendon Urie’s unbelievable pipes are on full display over marching band percussion and big horns. It’s an energetic high point, but Don Diablo brings out its full ballad potential. He slows the tempo down just a touch, simplifies the production and adds some seriously-soulful house mood. Piano chords and a big build bring it to its sing-along climax.
Don Diablo’s take on “High Hopes” is definitely one for the dance floor. His remix of “High Hopes” is out now on Fueled By Ramen via Warner Music Group.
