Paramore - Ain't It Fun (Kasum Remix)

Paramore – Ain’t It Fun (Kasum Remix)

After dropping a synth-heavy, nostalgic remix of Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue” earlier this year, Kasum is back with his take on a recent Paramore hit. Ain’t It Fun came out at the very beginning of 2014, and was a huge hit for the pop-rock group. Kasum’s take on the track kicks off with a beautiful piano melody, letting Hayley Williams’ uplifting vocals take center stage. As the beat ramps up, the song progresses to a indie-influenced, trap drop. Kasum is particularly adept at keeping the essence of the original song in tact, as he did with the youthful longing and carefree fun found in “Ocean Avenue,” yet adding his own twist. He does the same for “Ain’t It Fun,” keeping the original’s rebellious yet playful tone in place and building his version of the track around it. Expect to hear more from this college sophomore in the future, and we hope he continues his trend of retrofitting mainstream rock and alternative hits with a unique EDM-centric sound.
