The Chainsmokers seem like they set a goal to take over the world, and they are nowhere near slowing down. The duo who made a name for themselves crafting fun, dancey remixes to indie rock hits like Smallpools’ ‘Dreaming’ or Phoenix’s ‘Trying To Be Cool,’ have been absolutely dominating the charts with their hit song ‘Roses‘ which surprised many as it strayed away from their usual 128 bpm house sound that drew fans to them in the first place.
In our newest Run The Trap premiere, The Chainsmokers continue on their quest of world domination with their brand new single, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ featuring 17 year old singer Daya. On the initial listen the track feels like if The XX and Diplo had a baby, and The Chainsmokers nursed it to life. It kicks off with an ominous guitar line before being introduced to Daya’s haunting vocals that breathe a brand new life into the track. But that’s only the beginning…just wait for the trap-flavored breakdowns sprinkled through out the track that is sure to be a hit at live shows. It’s the perfect combination of trap and vibes that hits you hard enough but give you time to breathe at the same time. You gotta check this one out.
So we know we have released a couple tracks since Roses, of which we all love, but we would consider this as our follow up to Roses. We consider this to be our most complete track and just like Roses came together in one session for the most part. We wrote this track with the talented Emily Warren who you might recognize from DLMD and with Scott. The trap sound is a custom sound we made using one of loupvcks soundpacks actually…haha shout out guys! and you can tell we were really feeling the XX vibes when did this and actually had JUST bought the electric guitar we used so we were really feeling it. On top of this all we were lucky enough to have Daya get involved who so talented and did an amazing job on the vocal! Just make sure you stick around till the 3rd drop! –The Chainsmokers
