IZ*ONE – Fiesta (Selective Hearing Remix)

FIESTA is the lead single from IZ*ONE’s first full-length album BLOOM*IZ. It was a great introduction to what would end up being a fantastic album. I wanted to take a crack at this song from the moment I heard it. Of course, that was easier said than done. Finding a clean-ish vocal track was the first hurdle to get over. Once I found one that wasn’t too terrible it was time to get to work.

IZ*ONE – FIESTA (Instrumental) [2020]

When you break this song down section by section it has a fairly simple structure in regards to arrangement. The most difficult part for me was the entire chorus. There was a lot more going on with little instrumental flourishes in that part than I realized. Rather than foolishly try to replicate that section, I decided to just stick what would work for the feeling of the track I was constructing around the vocal.

The final result is something that maintains the essence of the original buit is not as intense of a workout in regards to danceability.
