The fact that Anders and Andreas, the faces behind BOILERS, have never met before doesn’t stand in the way of them releasing their first promising hit on OH₂ Records. Living on opposite sides of Denmark, the duo started working together during the COVID-19 lockdown and has been producing through Zoom meetings. On their remake of the famous 1997 ballad ‘KissMe’, originally by SixpenceNoneTheRicher, the creative geniuses prove that not even a global pandemic can’t hold them back from producing this hit-in-making.
Using the original vocals and sweet guitar licks to open up the track, BOILERS know how to produce a goosebump inducing throwback. After the beat drops the original tune makes room for some highly-energetic melodies combined with the original vocal samples. Manipulating the frequencies, pulsing synth tones come rushing in accompanied by groovy build-ups. BOILERS’ version of ‘KissMe’ elevates this classic to be enjoyed in a fresh new way by every generation.
BOILERS’ remake of ‘KissMe’ is set to be the second release on OliverHeldens’ brand-new OH₂ Records. “After releasing my own ‘Set Me Free’ on OH₂ Records last week, I knew the second track had to have huge potential to set the tone for all upcoming releases on my new label. I have a lot of faith in this track by BOILERS and I can’t wait for the world to hear it.” says international superstar OliverHeldens.
With the original track coming in second in the Billboard Hot 100 in 1999 and staying in the top 100 for 33 weeks, ‘KissMe’ gained worldwide success, landing No.1 in the Australian and Canadian singles chart and No.2 in the United States. Reaching the top 10 in Germany, Greece, Italy and the UK among others and peaking the top 20 in The Netherlands, Iceland, Wallonia and Sweden. In June 1999, BBCTelevision in the United Kingdom used the song as a closing theme for the BBCOne broadcast coverage of PrinceEdward’sroyalwedding and in an interview with Vogue, TaylorSwift stated ‘Kiss Me’ was the very first song that she learned to play on the guitar when she was 12 years old. With its impressive resumé it is safe to say that ‘KissMe’ is one of the greatest hits of all time and we can’t wait for the BOILERS remake to follow its path.
