When we heard the A-Trak remix of Bob Moses’ “Tearing Me Up,” we were a bit thrown off at the approach and sound he went with. The original was a lot darker, and had a more minimalist approach and we formed a sense of familiarity to the OG, making an instant favorite. That being said, this summer remix certainly represents the seasonal change since the original came out in late 2015. A-Trak's remix is certainly a bit more busy and upbeat, which allows for a more ‘happy’ tone. It is also at a BPM of 120, where the original is reasonably slower at 115. Though we weren't quite comfortable with it at first, we quickly became accustomed and understood what A-Trak was going for: a summer take on a winter song.
A-Trak's remix of "Tearing Me Up" is set to live on BM's deluxe album, Days Gone By: Never Enough, releasing August 19 on Domino Records.
