For some reason, people love remixing “Cooler” by PHASES on SoundCloud. Originally a synthy, the 80s influenced indie pop track, “Cooler” turns into the most chill sounding track with Shoe Scene‘s complete makeover of it.
Almost nothing from the original track makes an appearance in the remix, other than the vocals. Listen to the original track here:
However, it’s not long before listeners are exposed to a burst of vibrant noise, composed of wooden percussion sounds, bouncing piano chords, the freshest sounding snaps and a trap snare. The vocals alternate being in the spotlight with other elements in the track, and they compliment each other in a way you would have never expected when listening to the original. Nicely done vocal chops make the occasional appearance, but don’t take away from the overall track.
The Shoe Scene‘s remix of PHASES’ “Cooler” is a pleasant breath of fresh air!
Overall, this remix of “Cooler” is a pleasant breath of fresh air in an oversaturated SoundCloud scene filled to the brim with chill trap tracks. It opens with the vocals and simple piano chords, setting a more toned-down mood than the original track. You can download it for free below:
