Merk & Kremont are one of the hottest rising production duos around right now, known for their club music one minute, and pop anthems the next. This summer, the Italian pair unleashed their latest pop-leaning single “Sad Story (Out Of Luck)”, and this weekend saw the release of ‘The Remixes’ from artists Just Kiddin, FTSE, USAI & Crusy, Deepend, and Addal.
Originally a track by Ady Suleiman called ‘Out of Luck’, this rework became the duo into the summer anthem we now recognize, and, with over 4 million streams and 6.4 million views on the video, Merk & Kremont can add another to success story to their books. The duo had this to say about the formation of the track:
“We were coming back from a gig and we heard the original song on the radio – we had to Shazam it ‘cause we had never heard of it, but we both fell in love with it instantly and decided we just had to make our own version! We actually laid the first tracks that same night, even though we were so tired, we just had to do it. This is the result, and it feels like our best work yet.”
This varied remix package sees particular highlights from the mellow yet funky vibes of previous Usher remixer Just Kiddin, alongside a more bass driven FTSE mix that makes use of penetrating staccato vocal snippets set against a tense bassline. The package also features a pair of hot remixes from two upcoming Italian acts USAI & Crusy, as well as the highly talented Addal.
Since the single release, Merk & Kremont have been working hard, and are soon set to feature on the forthcoming remix package for ‘Without You ft. Sandro Cavazza’, the latest global hit from Swedish production sensation Avicii. With so many hits under their belt, the duo isn’t running out of luck anytime soon.
