Special Features Remixes The Aston Shuffle 'Can't Stop Now' [First-Listen]

Special-features

Following his sublime revamp of Ellie Goulding's "Only You," rising U.K. producer Special Features now serves up an equally potent remake of The Aston Shuffle's "Can't Stop Now." Produced to perfection, it's an invigorating slice of pop-infused progressive house that captures a sweet sense of melancholia that's perfect for the dancefloor or your hard-hitting cardio routine.

The remix kicks off with slow-burning arpeggios on keys and string plucks that harmonize to form a gorgeous sonic atmosphere under The Aston Shuffle's vocals. The sequence soon builds into a strong crescendo with drums, synths, and vocals looped to perfection. In the midst of the madness, the lead melody line is subtly introduced around the 2:30 minute mark before completely breaking through at the drop where the full song is unleashed at full capacity. 

Special Features recently graduated from music college in London and he can now fully devote himself to producing more remixes, plus original tracks. If you enjoy this Ellie Goulding remix, make sure to check out Special Features' current single "Illusions" (Atlantic/Big Beat) that is available on Beatport now.
