Seeb

Mike Posner isn't really a name that comes to mind when you think about an incredible night in Ibiza. His song 'I Took A Pill In Ibiza' was good, but it was also pretty ridiculous. I can remember someone, perhaps it was Deadmau5, called out Posner on Twitter saying how much of a poser the song made him seem.

Regardless, whether you like the original version or not, the Seeb remix is one hell of a catchy tune! 

Holding the #1 spot in the UK Charts for 4 consecutive weeks now and racking up 128+ million plays on Youtube, we know this song will be everywhere this summer, especially the party focused island. It takes the slow, 75 bpm song up to a tropical, melodic hit that you can't help but to bob your head to when it drops. 

It's just too damn catchy. 

So how did they do it? To take us into their world, the duo recently released their first 'Seebisode' (get it?) about how they discovered the song and what they did to make it a hit. They approached it from a pop perspective, keeping the vocals in the forefront while building a catchy club tune around them. We just wish it was longer and more in depth, but maybe one day they will release something like that.

Watch the Seebisode below to get the full story.
