Not to mention a brand new verse by yours truly!”.

Reimagining “Eyes Wide Shut”: 

The DJ was determined to retain the essence of what made people fall in love with the original song.

However, he didn’t set any strict rules or boundaries for himself and allowed his creativity to flow freely. The part where he manipulated Avril’s voice was particularly special to him, and it blended perfectly with the aggressive drums on the drop section. Interestingly, he deliberately chose heavy rock-inspired drum sounds instead of typical EDM ones, as a tribute to Illenium’s larger-than-life stage sound. The entire process came together in a fascinating way in his studio.
