REVIEW: Alan Walker - Faded (Remixes) out on MER Musikk/Sony Music

Five Gold Records, one Platinum, number 1 in the sales chart of seven different Countries, more than 250 millions streams on Spotify and more than 195 millions views on YouTube (considering only the official video). Unbelievable!

He notes in his facebook page: "When I was a kid, I had a fascination for programming and graphic design. Music kind of just happened spontaneously a few years back. I found a track on Youtube that I liked – it inspired me and it made me start exploring producing myself. Everything started online with people, or rather nicknames, from around the world helping each other out. Now music is a big part of my life".

Alan Walker and his single “Faded” is one the biggest hits of the latest months, overplayed everywhere and supported by everyone. A record that has made everyone fall in love, including the one and only Tiesto, one of the most popular and appreciated DJs of the world, at the top of the scene since 20 years now. The remix package includes two Tiesto remixes, Dash Berlin, Luke Christopher and Tungevaag & Raaban.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Faded is the absolute smash hit that has already many bootleg remixes by various djs and now is the time for the official remixers to come on board and transform the very beautiful original. Firstly Tiesto offers 2 great remixes with the deep remix being the perfect melodic deep house version with chunky grooves, lazy basslines and  relaxing piano chords that support perfectly the magical vocal. The Northern Lights remix provides the perfect uplifting progressive house version with relaxing smooth breakdown followed by big booming uplifting prog house climax to make you jump for sure with certain Avicci influence to it. Tungevaag & Raaban deliver the stunning mainstage festivals ready version with big basslines, fat grooves and thumping basslines. Dash Berlin does what he knows best by injecting energy, dynamism and earthshaking grooves along with romantic piano melody in the breakdown followed by thundercrushing synthy soundwaves. Lastly Luke Christopher remix adds additional male rap vocal for the deep house meets urban soul version. Looking forward for more anthems by Alan Walker. Love it [/content]
