World-Renowned Drummer/DJ DRMAGDN has just released the official music video of his remix of the Beatles classic “Something.” In four weeks the single has broken 2.5 million plays/views and is going viral around the world, as well as it has been added to the biggest two Spotify playlists “Today’s Top Hits” and “MINT.”
After signing with BMG, DRMAGDN was given the rights to dig into George Harrison’s catalog, and he enlisted Michelle Ray (Team Blake on Season 4 of The Voice) and a cast of other heavy-hitters to help take his re-working of “Something” to new heights. The result is an extremely memorable, drum-fill heavy, electronic-leaning gem that accomplishes what many remixes/covers don’t – it actually does justice to the original, and then some.
DRMAGDN discusses the inspiration behind the remix: “‘Something’ is my favorite Beatlestune of all time. So I jumped at the chance to do a modern remix of the song when BMG acquired George Harrison’s catalog. These musical shoes are literally the biggest in the world to fill, so I had to completely pull out all the stops on this Beatles tribute including nods to the artwork and a truly epic music video.”
Rounding out the all-star cast who contributed to the remix is Dave Eggar on strings (Grammy winning record “Viva La Vida” – Coldplay, The Who, Bon Jovi, Fall Out Boy), Danny Flam on horns (Kanye West/Rihanna’s “All Of The Lights”), Oscar Albis-Rodriquez on guitar/bass (A Great Big World, Sarah McLachlan) and vinyl mastering by Andy Vandette (David Bowie, U2, The Prodigy, Aerosmith and Rush).
