Just a few months after its original release, R3HAB, ZAYN, and Jungleboi‘s acclaimed collaboration “Flames” got a remix by the two-time Grammy-nominated producer/DJ Steve Aoki. Trading the original’s soothing beats for funky breakdowns and driving basslines, Steve Aoki flips “Flames” on its head and makes it ready for a night out. ZAYN‘s infamously velvety vocals remain primarily intact for the remix, adding a sensual touch to this dancefloor killer. The single was one of R3HAB‘s most talked-about releases from 2019, demonstrating his dynamic process as a producer who is at home experimenting with many different sounds. Now roping in the legendary producer/DJ for remix duties, R3HAB is truly taking it to the next level in the new decade.
“Steve Aoki and I go way back to my early days of touring and releasing music. With “Flames” being one of my most significant releases to date, I couldn’t be happier that Steve has agreed to make this remix of the song. It’s a real original twist on the track – which is what a remix should be, of course! It’s fire, so enjoy!” – R3HAB
“It was a lot of fun remixing this one for R3HAB, Jungleboi, and ZAYN. Such a massive track, I had to make more of a club vibe for it. Let’s see your dance choreography, and all the DJs bang it out in the club!” – Steve Aoki
