Ed Sheeran has a voice and style that lends itself well to electronic reworkings. For example, Norway-based producer Kygo, known for his melodic, tropical remixes, remixed Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire”, and Sheeran's voice effortlessly floats above the melody for an intoxicating concoction.
Stepping up in the ranks of Ed Sheeran remixes is Swedish producer Syn Cole. Syn Cole solidified his place in the spotlight with his original track "Miami 82", which received remixes from Avicii, Jerry Folk, and Kygo. For his crack at bat, Syn remixes the single “Sing” off of Sheeran’s forthcoming album X, set for release next month.
This remix is more dancy, with stabbing synth lines enveloping Sheeran’s vocals in an electric and invigorating progressive soundscape. Currently, the original track is dominating the airwaves, sitting in the top 10 in more than 35 countries globally. Sheeran has a slew of festival and tour dates coming up, so be sure to check him out.
