Digital Remix Singles

Sony Music released three digital singles 'Do The Vega' (Dillon Francis Remix), 'Catchin' On Fast' (Big Boi Remix) and 'Clean Up Your Own Backyard' (Chromeo Remix) through streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. 

The remixes were created in cooperation with Peloton in their 'Artists Series' and only available as part of their workout-program helping you to stay motivated. For Big Boi, new music is motivation, and when creating his remix of 'Catchin' On Fast' his main goal was for people to move. “We knew we had to make it up-tempo because we wanted to be groovy and explosive. So we started with the drums first and then took it from there. When you listen to it, it just speaks for itself. It's gonna make you move.”
