Hello (Candyland Remix) – Stafford Brothers ft. Christina Milian & Lil’ Wayne

January 30, 2013


Starting out with a piano line reminiscent of Carpenter’s “Halloween”, this quickly establishes that it is pop, not creepy. It’s interesting how pop has shifted over the past few years. Progressive house is basically pop now. The original of “Hello” consists of traditional female vocal hooks backed by traditional progressive house synths and hooks. It’s pretty standard and fun, with Lil Wayne thrown on top for good measure. So what do EDM DJs like Candyland do? They remix it by having a simple piano line start it off then draw on electro synths to make it a bit edgier, syncopate the beat a bit to emphasize the vocals, and drop the beat after each verse. All of this really emphasizes the vocals in a way that the original doesn’t. As a bonus, they make Lil Wayne’s verse fit the song, so it doesn’t stick out like it does in the original. It’s very well done, as I am coming to expect from the Candyland DJ duo. Enjoy!
