After decades of existing in the underground, electronic dance music has finally been getting the attention and recognition that it deserves. With producer/DJs like Calvin Harris and Skrillex releasing records that top the charts and redefine the course of dance music, this explosion in popularity is only accelerating. Thanks to the open-mindedness of popular singers, rappers, and musicians in mainstream music we’re being exposed to a constant stream of explosive, collaborative talent. The latest single breaking barriers in the industry, “Jackie Chan,” is a massive project from Tiesto, Dzeko, Preme, and Post Malone. Check it out below.
Tiesto is a Grammy award-winning producer and DJ who has led many electronic music acts to fame. Names like Hardwell, Mike Williams, and Zaxx come to mind, and now he has teamed up with Canadian producer Dzeko. The new single features stunning vocal performances from Post Malone and Preme, whose timbres and cadences perfectly complement one another. The summer anthem highlights both Preme’s catchy verse melodies and Post’s infectious hooks, elevated further by the smooth finish of Tiesto and Dzeko’s excellent production.
Tiesto reminisced on the culmination of the track, noting “Dzeko and I have been friends with Post for some time. When we met Preme in Las Vegas, he showed us the vocal he and Post had been working on and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to collaborate. I’m really excited to put this out for you all to hear. We’ve definitely created a summer anthem with this one.” You can catch Tiesto at Talking Stick Resort on June 24th for the Release Pool Party.
