GHOSTS, a new Austrian trio, made their debut by remixing Pharrell… and his hat. Their remix of Pharrell’s “Happy” is a housey rendition of the buoyant and chanty original. Featured in the animated family film, Despicable Me 2, Pharrell’s “Happy” is a mindless frolic through the land of chipper effervescence. Even if you can’t stand its cheerful repetition, you end up tapping your feet. Admit it. Well, if you don’t, you’ll be Happy (See what I did there?) to hear that GHOSTS have managed to add some balls to the track and some testosterone to Pharrell’s voice.
The sick bassline applies a thin layer of dark mystery over the original’s colorful wonderland. GHOSTS did not tamper with the euphoric aspect of the original, they only made it stronger, and more forceful. Many others have attempted to remix Pharrell’s “Happy” only to end up changing the entire feel of the song. Surprisingly, GHOSTS have managed to not only stay true to the original but actually improve it.
The remix of “Happy” is the first upload on GHOSTS’ SoundCloud. With only 95 followers, we’re excited to see where the trio ends up. Their debut was a promising one and we hope they’ll be able to top it in the future.
