fromis_9 has spent much of the past year making content for their YouTube channel, so when they returned with a new song and EP, it was a pleasant surprise. Their song Feel Good (SECRET CODE) is a slight deviation from their brand of pop. It is a throwback track taking influence from both disco and funk music.
The original version is a great song and lays a solid foundation for various types of remixes. That made it relatively easy for me to start putting my spin on Feel Good (SECRET CODE).
Instead of replicating the retro sound, I tried to take the song in a new direction by creating a different feel for the rhythm section and spicing things up using organic-sounding instruments and samples for the melodic parts. The final result is something that brings another type of energy to the song.
