Though we’ve been deuged with a tidal wave of The Chainsmokers remixes this year, and despite the fact that a few of them have featured new vocals rather than their original vox, we have heard nothing like this completely revamped cover of smash single Don’t Let Me Down by innovative hip hop artist SIDIZEN KING. On production duties is casualkimino who turns in a brilliant job melding swanky future bass with jazzy trap. Its on that luxuriant bed on which SIDIZEN KING fires off some rapid and smooth on point rapping. It all seems to come so effortlessly for this rising Los Angeles hip hop talent, whose fervent and intense skillfulness is a fine match for the intoxicating pitch shifted Daya hooks from the original. Simply put, Don’t Let Me Down has received its most brilliant re-imagination. Though true to the original, it’s also been made into a fresh and visionary new track all SIDIZEN KING and casualkimono’s own. Download the track for free, here.

Las Vegas’ 3LAU is one of the latest producers to take on The Chainsmokers. The red hot production duo’s music has been so popular in the remix game these days, it’s near impossible to go a day or two without encountering at least one new edit. But trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this one. 3LAU’s edit of Don’t Let Me Down, featuring rising pop star Daya, is a summery pool of wistful chill trap bliss. His remix is the perfect accompaniment to this springtime heat wave we’ve been having here in the Bay. Though exhilarating, there’s a strong undercurrent of inherent sadness in 3LAU’s beautiful re-work, one that injects my heart with a tingling dose of sweet nostalgia. The remix is a free download, here.

Remixes of The Chainsmokers continue to roll in on a near daily basis, but when I saw the name Jenaux on this one, I knew I had to set everything aside and give it my full attention. Not that there was any chance of my mind straying away from the NYC based producer’s remix of Daya featuring Don’t Let Me Down, not at all. Jenaux gives the song a breathtaking makeover, one that bubbles over with frisky and showy funk. Daya’s voice seems sweeter than ever on the horn dapper electro house remix, leaving me wondering who on earth would ever let her down? Download Jeneaux’s remix for free, here.

Win and Woo always wins over my heart and woos the soul. The Chainsmoker’s ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ gets reimagined and I’ll admit I’m a little biased. I read the first comment on the track and he said he felt like he was in a Rihanna mixtape. Now I can’t stop imaging Rihanna dance to this. Win and Woo + Rihanna = fire fire. Those horns, the keys, and that bass. This remix will not let you down.

The Chainsmokers and Illenium? You’ve got to be kidding me! But these fellas don’t joke around, as we all know, and an Illenium remix of The Chainsmokers’ Don’t Let Me Down is sure to tickle your ears plentifully with its mellifluous melodic dubstep brilliance. Lest you forgot, fast rising pop talent Daya turns in the riveting vocals on the song (and I just heard her while shopping at the mall the other day, always a mark of sure success). Daya and The Chainsmokers take on a new coat of majestic stateliness on the Denver based producer’s breathtaking remix.

This Friday night is that much better, because The Chainsmokers dropped a brand new one. The boys from New York go a trap and pop route on Don’t Let Me Down, which features Philadelphia’s Daya on guest vocals. Don’t Let Me Down is a soaring anthem in every way, a gloriously rousing electronic ballad on which Daya reminds me of both Sia and Elliphant with her magnificent voice. Purchase Don’t Let Me Down on iTunes. And if you’re in the Bay, you have plenty of chances to catch The Chainsmokers live this weekend due to Super Bowl 50.
