GOLDHOUSE Delivers Best Remix on Album of "This Town" Reimaginations
If asked to provide one reason as to why Tiesto has existed as a powerhouse producer of electronic music for as long as he currently has, we would point you to his remix of Niall Horan’s debut single as a solo artist, “This Town.” The soft acoustic number released via Capitol Records on September 29, 2016 reached #20 on Billboard’s “Hot 100 List,” an achievement that captured the attention of the “Red Lights” producer. The Dutch DJ accordingly paired the song with an unimposing dance music beat that would later surface on various radio stations, supplanting the original.
While our hats are off to Tiesto for the yet another successful remix, our trending artist feature goes not to the already acclaimed, Mixmag declared “Greatest DJ of All Time,” but to the Chicago born and raised electro-pop talent, GOLDHOUSE. Much like Tiesto, GOLDHOUSE too has delivered an official remix of “This Town,” a soothing re-imagination of the sentimental tune with a strong, piano dependent drop. The GOLDHOUSE version of the former One Directioner's song appears above.
GOLDHOUSE’s remix of “This Town” aligns him among the likes of Cheat Codes, Cabo San, and Niko Blank who likewise created official remixes to be compiled in an official EP of “This Town” remixes. No stranger to the remix, GOLDHOUSE has previously been involved with the production of official remixes of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” and Lady Gaga’s “Applause,” takes that demonstrate the young DJ/producer/songwriter/vocalist’s ability--talk about a quadruple threat--to craft creative musical responses to artists’ original tracks.
GOLDHOUSE’s musical capabilities, however, are not limited only to the production of remixes: the Chicago native released his first single in 2015, the upbeat “When I Come Home.” The official YouTube video for “When I Come Home” appears below. Being that two years have passed since the release of GOLDHOUSE’s debut single, we hope to hear more solo pieces dropped by the producer this year.
