Tinkering with a classic is always risky business, but every once and a while an artist comes along with enough vision to successfully reimagine someone else’s’ masterpiece. Tom & Collins are that artist. The Mexican, electronic dance duo has transformed Tracy Chapman’s blues track “Give Me One Reason” into something worthy of any club or festival ground. The pair has had lots of practice, gaining a Spotify listenership of over one hundred and fifty thousand with their remixes of Madonna’s “Bitch I’m Madonna”, Sofi Tukker’s “Hey Lion”, and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”.
Though not quite mainstream EDM, they’re not far off; the pair has topped Hype machine’s charts and attended a MTV Millenial Awards pre-party June 1st to celebrate their “Buzz Artists” nomination. Other, past performances include sets at Beyond Wonderland, Tomorrowland, and Rio de Janeiro’s 2016 Olympic games. Avicii, Alesso, Martin Garrix are just a few of the artists with whom they’ve shared a stage at these internationally acclaimed venues.
