Releasing August 28, 2015, the EDM culture film "We Are Your Friends" has Zac Efron starring in a coming of age story about a DJ struggling for his big break. Today, the film revealed the first single from its accompanying soundtrack. The single is a remix of Years & Years' "Desire" by the breakoNYC-based electronic soul producer Gryffin.

Gryffin's take on the original deep house-influenced version is infused with tropical house elements, showcasing summery guitar licks and shuffling hi-hat rhythms against a steady house beat. Gryffin carefully executes his use of atmosphere throughout the track, creating an expansive space for the soulful vocals to resonate, all while maintaining danceable grooves and an overall upbeat energy.
