Kiesza – Hideaway Remixes We Love

Kiesza
Kiesza

We’ve been looking for a remix of Kiesza’s Hideaway, a pop house track with deep house leanings that have every 15-year old girl around the world finding a street corner and shooting copycat Instagram videos of themselves dancing like Kiesza.  After surfing around the web, we came up with two that we really loved.

The first is this piano stomper from Zac Samuel, a little known producer out of Brighton, U.K., who brings a bit of energy to the track. Here’s YouTube video below.

Sure that was fun, but we wanted something even DEEEPER! Well, say no more. We got it with this version by the Bixel Boys, who by the way don’t seem to really go this deep. Listening to their other stuff on their SoundCloud leads me to believe this duo from Los Angeles – who make “underground tunes for big rooms” – took a left turn and settled it down a bit from their normal big room electronic sound. Heck, we’re not complaining!
