Often times, a remix effort overcompensates in order to try and do the original justice, it happens time and time again — luckily, that isn’t the case with Midnight Kids‘ remix of The Temper Trap’s iconic “Sweet Disposition.”
Midnight Kids are a relatively new duo that has locked in impressive official remixes for the likes of The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Louis The Child, recently amassing over 1 million streams on SoundCloud without any original music out yet. The mysterious duo radiates fresh energy from tune to tune as they infuse each remixed track with their uniquely upbeat melodies and crafty productions.
“We listened to this song in times when we were down or lost and really had no other option than to just get lost in the music,” the duo says of their remix. “We all go through hard times and have that song we listen to. Well this is that song for us.”
Midnight Kids’ take on The Temper Trap‘s “Sweet Disposition” is marked by a beautifully crafted atmospheric appeal, designed to pulls on the listeners’ heartstrings. The track’s lyrical accents melt on top of swelling percussion builds, introducing a goosebump-inducing drop that’s primed for summer dance floor action.
