The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” Has Been Remixed – 80’s Style

The DJ and producer TRONICBOX has been remixing today’s hits into 80’s versions of the songs. Artists including Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and Calvin Harris have all had their songs remixed on the channel, and we’ve got to admit, they’ve all been good.

One of his latest installments was taking one of The Chainsmokers' songs back in time and transforming the upbeat, pop song into a slow, sultry jam. “The Marlboro Smokers” show what "Closer" would have sounded like if it came out around 30 years earlier. The track starts off with a slow intro consisting of keys and synths, and of course Drew’s dreamy vocals. A nice drum rhythm welcomes the chorus and rest of the song as it slowly builds throughout. One of the last “drops” has a killer guitar solo that really makes the track.

You’ll have to listen to the full remix below to get the complete idea. If your parents didn’t like this song before, try showing them this version. We guarantee it’s a bop!
