Summertime hasn’t sounded this ’80s since, well, the 1980s.
Demi Lovato’s “Cool for the Summer” was a straight up party hit this time last year, but it could have been so much more. Thankfully, musician TRONICBOX ripped out all the guts of this 2016 track and turned it into a song that would have been perfect on any number of 1980’s soundtracks for movies like “Pretty In Pink” or “Just One of the Guys.” Fans of the ’80’s synths and instruments will definitely be delighted, and everyone’s fave, the saxophone, makes a delightful cameo. The nostalgic aesthetic might not be for everyone, but it’s obvious that TRONICBOX poured love into every second of this track.
TRONICBOX is known for reimagining modern tracks, like Rihanna’s “Work.”
TRONICBOX deconstructed Rihanna’s “Work” into a ménage à trois of polka, jazz and emo that has to be heard to be believed.
Here’s a bass-slapping flashback version of Fifth Harmony’s “Sledgehammer.”
After listening to the remix, check out Demi Lovato’s original “Cool for the Summer.”
Lovato’s original version of “Cool for the Summer” really captures the late night, party atmosphere in some parts of Los Angeles. It’s 2016 all the way, decades removed from the TronicBox’s ’80s remix.
