Grandtheft Remixes Calvin Harris’s ‘This Is What You Came For’ Feat. Rihanna
It’s become increasingly apparent that anything Grandtheft touches comes paired with his signature brand of innovative production and trademark consistency. Already boasting a highly impressive catalog of singles and features, Grandtheft talents aren’t limited to originals, as can be seen by his remixes for some of the biggest names in music like Rihanna, T.I., Katy Perry, and Calvin Harris. Claiming his stake as the go-to producer for smash remixes, Grandtheft has added his distinctive flair to Calvin Harris’s summer chart topper ‘This Is What You Came For’ ft. Rihanna out now on Sony Music.
Already his 3rd remix for Calvin and 2nd for Rihanna, it’s clear to see the magic that happens when the eclectic sounds of these talented producers are meshed together. First linking on Calvin Harris’s ‘Sweet Nothing’ ft. Florence Welch, which amassed over 8 million plays on Spotify, Grandtheft soon followed up with his rendition of ‘Summer’ which saw him pair with Diplo to create yet another ubiquitous hit.
Releasing as part of the official ‘This Is What You Came For’ remix package, Grandtheft speeds up the tempo of the original, and adds crisp hi-hats and driving kicks, paving the way for Rihanna’s festival ready vocals to shine through. Turning the track into a frenetic trap anthem, the seamless blend of high-pitched synths, wobbles, and bass make for the perfect summer remix primed to receive some serious airtime across the festival and club circuit.
Grandtheft has had a phenomenal year so far as he continues to forge his path toward summer domination. With 4 releases already under his belt in 2016, the trendsetting Canadian based producer is looking to make the summer festival circuit his best ever.
