Last month, Los Angeles outfit SWIMM kicked off the new year with their new single "You Never Fake It," a slow-burning and emotional track which comes as the band is teasing a new album.

Today, they're sharing a pulsating WiLLY MiKK remix of the track, which unveils a completely different dimension of the original song.

“The original song had such beautiful vocals that I wanted to use them in their entirety to tell the same story of the song but in a more danceable and traditional House music feel," says WiLLY MiKK. "I opted for a more organic approach mixing a real bass guitar with a Moog synth bass, blending real drum and percussion samples with electronic ones, and sampling a cello ensemble performance for the main side-chained chords. And to give it a different overall vibe I ended up keeping the same song structure but using a totally different chord progression throughout.”
