Calvin Harris‘ “By Your Side” was released just in time to become the ultimate summer anthem. When it came out in the beginning of June, it was clear that the cut had all the makings of an exciting summer smash, its upbeat vocals made to flow with the background of coastal lines on long road trips. After inviting Oliver Heldens to remix the track in July, Harris continues the summer of “By Your Side” by tapping SIDEPIECE to next provide their take on the track.
Party Favor and Nitti Gritti maintain the track’s original feel, making a few slight tweaks to give their own style some speaker time. The SIDEPIECE spin follows Nitti Gritti’s recent pre-HARD Summer playlist, premiered by Dancing Astronaut. Meanwhile, Party Favor has been relatively quiet this year, releasing just one solo single, “Oh Nah Yeah,” and “Temptation” with SIDEPIECE.
