Dutch production trio ChildsPlay has released a seven-track remix pack featuring collaborations with a number of other producers. The pack includes remixes of tracks from Major Lazer, Skrillex and Damian Marley, 2Pac, and more, and is available exclusively on DJcity.
Regarding the remixes, ChildsPlay says “every DJ loves a good club remix. Doesn’t matter how good you are or what your style is. A good club remix always brings a bit [of] extra juice to the table.” They add, “it’s a ‘ChildsPlay & Friends’ concept. We are always on the lookout for talent and these guys all have their own vibe but [are] still close to what we do so we… get [the] best of both worlds.”

Dutch DJ/producer trio CHILDSPLAY have dropped a moombahton-influenced remix of Tyga‘s latest single “Taste” featuring Offset. Earlier this year, the group co-produced J Balvin, Jeon, and Anitta‘s global anthem, “Machika.”

In the interview, Chuckie explains that the foundation of “Machika” isn’t reggaeton like some listeners may think. Instead, it’s rooted in a Dutch Caribbean house style called “bubbling.”
“Bubbling was born in the late 1980s when DJ Moortje, a Netherlands-based DJ from Curacao, accidentally speeded up a dancehall track during a club set …,” Billboard writes. “The rhythms of Jamaica [including reggaeton instigator dembow] have been favorites in the Netherlands,” Chuckie says. “Bubbling changed the speed to almost double the tempo.”
“The sound of ‘Machika’ is [the sound] of the evolution of bubbling … A lot of the grooves are sounds I was using back in the ’90s. It’s kind of reinvented itself for this new generation of kids.”
Along with his experience in the style, Chuckie also recognized the importance of mashing different cultures.
“Now with the Internet, we’re all world citizens; [through music] we get to learn about other cultures and I think that’s beautiful,” Chuckie says. “They know that whatever I’m going to send them sounds different. It’s nice to have different flavors in a genre. That keeps it interesting for everyone.”
According to Billboard, “Machika” has been rumored to be in the running to be used as a World Cup song. That makes sense, given the track’s high energy, fusion of cultures, and international appeal.
