MEDUZA Puts Their Magical Spin on Calvin Harris & Sam Smith’s “Desire”: Listen

The wave of remixes for Calvin Harris and Sam Smith‘s euro-dance hit, “Desire,” keeps rolling, with the Italian trio MEDUZA taking the reins this time.

“Desire” marks Calvin Harris’s second foray into the euro-dance realm, hinting at his intention to assemble another stellar remix collection, much like he did for “Miracle” with Ellie Goulding. And what better way to continue enlisting exquisite talent than to bring in the refined trio, MEDUZA? Their addition joins an already star-studded lineup, including Hannah Laing, Alok, and Cedric Gervais, all contributing their unique flair to the track.

MEDUZA has crafted a delightful remix for “Desire” without straying from the signature sound that has defined their work over the past year. It’s evident that the trio’s distinct sonic elements persist, as heard in previous productions like their remix of “Tell Me Why” or “Friends.” While some producers might risk sounding uninspired when repeatedly employing their signature style, MEDUZA manages to keep things groovy and fresh, a feat that comes as no surprise. This remix follows their show-stopping rendition of “Tell Me Why,” which, at the time of writing, is breaking into the realm of 80 million streams on Spotify.

MEDUZA recently concluded their remarkable 18-week Ibiza residency. Alongside their compatriot and virtuoso behind the decks, James Hype, they embarked on a project called “Our House,” characterized by house music, a lively crowd, and good vibes. Stepping in for David Guetta, who unfortunately fell ill, they took over his F*** Me I’m Famous residency at Ushuaia in a thundering style. They’re set to do it again for the closing party, where the “Desire” remix is expected to make a significant impact.

For those unable to attend Ibiza in person to experience it live, streaming platforms offer an alternative. You can listen to the remix below and immerse yourself in the captivating sounds of MEDUZA’s spin on “Desire.”
