Sneaking in at the tail end of last year, Australia’s Hermitude graced us with the release of ‘Stupid World’ and today we excitedly saw a new remix drop from Holland based GANZ, this new take hits all the right spots, delivering a playable club version that will no doubt help it reach a new life as it continues to grow momentum online. The record features Def Jam signed German-American hit songwriter Bibi Bourelly, who was responsible Rihanna’s hit ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ and has previously featured on records from Usher and Jacob Banks in recent times.
GANZ takes the reins on ‘Stupid World’, injecting some of his signature club ready spice with a crafty remix that builds around magical bass, wavy synths, all supporting Bibi’s masterful vocal delivery. GANZ picked up acclaim previously for his rework of Flume’s Remix of Hermitude’s ‘Hyperpardise’ – which now boasts nearly 5 milllion streams. The Dutch based producer also recently dropped a full EP titled ‘Skin In The Game’ through Dim Mak, which is some of his best work to date.
The return of Hermitude to new music with ‘Stupid World’ has us excited, their releases hint at a journey into new territories for their creative process so we are hopeful we will see an album out sometime this year. This remix will however definitely keep us occupied for now.
