Toronto-based producer RYNX puts a future acoustic pop spin on R&B phenomenon Gallant’s hit single “Doesn’t Matter” in his new exhilarating remix.
RYNX is quickly gaining ground with his vibrant brand of future pop. His originals and remixes of Alison Wonderland‘s “Cry” and now Gallant‘s summer smash “Doesn’t Matter” stay true to his rock-influence, backing powerful guitar riffs with monstrous 808s. With his take on Gallant’s newest single, the producer finds another perfect pairing.
RYNX transforms the catchy downtempo original from top to bottom. Gallant’s impressive topline leaves a blank canvas to fully reimagine the underlying production. The official remix opts for a dramatic intro with a cutting acoustic guitar riff that continues through the verse. He doubles down on the energy through the build with layered percussion and snare rolls as Gallant’s powerful vocals resound. In the drop, Gallant’s original hook takes the sideline as a chopped vocal layer as RYNX cleverly blends organics from the guitar and brass with massive drums and bass.
Gallant is a legend in his own right, having taken his highly-acclaimed 2016 debut studio album Ology around the world. Since then, he’s collaborated with fellow all-stars like Sufjan Stevens, A$AP Ferg, and Jhene Aiko, even receiving high-praise from Elton John himself. On the contrary, RYNX’s popularity originally stemmed in the virtual world; he’s the founder of popular YouTube gaming channel VanossGaming, which boasts over 23 million subscribers.
