Spring 2011 was the major break-through, for the now well established alternative band Foster the People. I don’t think that there is a person out there who has not come across the song “Pumped Up Kicks” yet. As it is with most hit-singles, there are tons of remixes and remakes out there from professionals as well as hobby DJ’s and producers. This usually means there is a lot of trash out there and it can be quite hard to find the quality remakes. Once you find one of the few good ones though, it makes it even more special. Even 2 years after the “Pumped Up Kicks” was released there are still new remakes being made, like TMRW BOY’s most recent track.
TMRW BOY, aka Simon Hagström Rennerstedt, has a talent for creating amazing beats with strong, catchy vibes, which needs to be shared. With this track, the Berlin based producer has created a tune, and what a tune it is! The well known chorus line from “Pumped Up Kicks”, together with melodic house beats work their magic and make it hard to resist the instinct that tells you to just get up and dance. The vocals, claps and synth in the beginning build up the anticipation for the main section of the song, but trust me its worth the wait. Even though the introduction is a little bit too stretched for my sakes, when the beat kicks in and the distant “Hey! Hey!” shouts come in all the criticism seems minor and is forgotten. An incredible feel good tune!
