A remix can often change and evolve the way a song sounds, often giving the song a new image to represent itself. A fun beat and electronic energy make way for a new realm of possibility, and that’s exactly the case with Hannyta’s latest single, a remix of her song ‘17’ by Houson. It’s a fascinating single, and today we’ll be giving it a closer look.
Remixes allow an artist to recontextualize their past work, breathing new life into a mix and attracting a brand new audience that wouldn’t have otherwise been interested.
