This past May, Illenium disclosed the fourth and arguably most prosperous offering from his third studio LP, ‘Ascend‘ with “Good Things Fall Apart” alongside Jon Bellion. In an unprecedented sighting earlier this week, the Godfather of dance music himself,Tiësto, was revealed to be the single’s first official adapter.
The rendition serves as a shining complement to Illenium’s original breakup ballad, as the Dutchman pores over progressive synths while still maintaining the emotive epicenter of Bellion’s sultry lyrics. Fan expectations remained wary upon the remix’s initial announcement as it seemed improbable to do justice to one of 2019’s most colossal dance releases, but Tiësto has proven over time that doubt only emboldens him. With Illenium’s forthcoming studio album slated to hit shelves August 16, subsequent remixers will be hard-pressed to eclipse an offering of this caliber.
