After what seems like an eternal wait, Adam Lambert is finally back!

Golden Coast brought in the new year with their “Futurist” tune, and now Eau Claire has gave her own remix — which we are premiering today (April 22)!

The Washington, D.C.-based producer puts a fresh, breezy spin on the Los Angeles indie-pop duo’s summer-ready track. Eau Claire adds sparkling disco-lite synths and places Golden Coast’s bright falsettos to the forefront. The new take on the song will have you amped to get your toes wet at the nearest beach.

She stated this about working with Golden Coast’s tune:

“Futurist caught my attention at first listen with its addictive vocals and feel-good production.  The tempo is quite a bit slower than the songs I’ve released recently but I wanted to make the song more dance friendly so that I could also it include in my sets.  I created a new bassline and reworked the percussion which really helped to glue the song together.  The vocals are very powerful on their own and by removing a lot of the backing synths it allowed Golden Coast’s vocals resonate. The last couple of tracks I’ve remixed have definitely been inspired from within. It’s a new place for me as a producer; being able to develop ideas and lay them out with out going to someone else’s track for inspiration – it’s a pretty cool place to be.”
