When you hear that Tiesto and his producer friend Dzeko have teamed on a new track with Post Malone and Toronto’s Preme, would you first think of a lot of bass? Maybe some high-pitched synths on a massive build and a downright explosive hook? Or would you imagine…an acoustic-guitar driven summer melody that tastes like lemon ICEEs and sunscreen? Maybe… Jackie Chan?
“I’m really excited to share “Jackie Chan” with you all. The song came together pretty spontaneously. We met Preme in Las Vegas and he showed us the vocal he and Post Malone had been working on together. Since both Dzeko and I have been friends with Post for some time, it seemed like the perfect time for all of us to to collaborate“, says Tiesto.
The GRAMMY® Award-winning, platinum-certified, international DJ, Tiësto has teamed up with Dzeko, Preme and multi platinum-certified artist, Post Malone for a new hip hop infused dance track entitled “Jackie Chan.” Just in time for summer, “Jackie Chan” is a light-hearted, booming anthem with an irresistible beat and rousing vocals that feature Preme and Post Malone. Toronto based Dj/producer Dzeko showcases his incredibly talented production capabilities with one of the hottest releases of 2018. “Jackie Chan” comes ahead of Tiesto’s headlining set at Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival on May 19, a festival he has headlined every year since its inception.
“Jackie Chan” turns out to be the last option. It’s a summer-ready anthem with a couple of cool breeze features from the singing MCs, and it comes just in time for the EDC Las Vegas weekend where both Tiesto and Malone are scheduled to perform.
After being tapped by Tiësto as an act on the pulse of electronic music culture, Canadian producer Julian Dzeko has only continued to build upon his success. His rolodex of accomplishments holds a series of standout releases that have reached #1 on the Beatport charts. Dzeko has previously joined label boss and mentor Tiësto at his Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan, in addition to performing at Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, and EDC Las Vegas. Dzeko has proven himself to be one of the most promising Dj/producers to come through the Musical Freedom roster.
“I can’t wait for this release, it has a summery vibe and it’s an uplifting dance beat with amazing vocals”, said Dzeko.
‘Jackie Chan’ actually came together pretty spontaneously,” said Tiësto. “Dzeko and I have been friends with Post for some time. When we met Preme in Las Vegas, he showed us the vocal he and Post had been working on and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to collaborate. I’m really excited to put this out for you all to hear. We’ve definitely created a summer anthem with this one.”
According to Billboard, it’s a delightful slice of pop crossover for both the hip-hop and electronic dance entertainers. Kick it with the crew on the full track below.
