Nashville’s own CAPPA gets a remix treatment from none other than Instant Karma. The LA based duo have been making a name for themselves with remixes for Chelsea Lankes, King Deco, and others. On “Next Ex” they trade in pulsing bass lines for soaring sawtooth and arpeggiated 80s runs for playful flute-esque synths. Aided by rumbling low-end, these two Los Angeles remixers make us want to throw this tune onto the top slot of every weekend playlist. And honestly, we’re about to make a party playlist full of only this Next Ex remix. Check out what CAPPA & Instant Karma have to say about this one below!
“The original version of “next ex” is definitely more of a straight-up pop song. I think that’s what makes this remix so fun and special to me. It shows a new side of the song that I didn’t originally envision with more of a dance feel while still keeping it in the pop space. To me, Instant Karma made it totally their own and took it to a new level.” – CAPPA
“We had connected with CAPPA on social media a while ago, bonding over both being female artists and bouncing back and forth about a collab, but seeing her electric performance of her single ‘Next Ex’ in LA at KCRW’s ‘School Night’, pushed the collab over the edge and sparked a lot of ideas in our head for a new life for the song as an ‘Instant Karma’ remix. We wanted to bring out the bounce and rhythm of the song keeping it’s sexy femininity with a trendy spin that could work in more of an EDM space.” – Instant Karma
