Adele’s “Hello” Gets A Dance Floor Makeover From Dave Aude
Adele’s “Hello” has swept all before it since arriving in late October. The emotional ballad set first-week records for sales, streaming and VEVO views and (somewhat obviously) debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise then that the lead single from the Brit’s mega-selling 25 album is also wreaking havoc on the Dance Club Songs chart thanks to a slew of killer remixes.
The pick of the bunch belongs to club maestro Dave Aude. He switches out the somber piano of the original for a suitably melancholy electronic soundscape. I’m sure some will object to Adele’s music being deconstructed for the dance floor, but I’ve always enjoyed the superstar’s remixes — starting with Axwell’s amazing overhaul of “Hometown Glory” way back in 2008. Listen to an uptempo twist on “Hello” below.
