Sicarii, aka Billboard Dance’s Editor Matt Medved, has been making his way in the artist realm, and he’s already making waves. Earlier this year, he played BillBoard’s Hot 100 Festival, alongside some of the biggest names in contemporary music, and during his set, he debuted his remix of Maroon 5’s “Sugar,” which was actually supported by the band themselves. The remix is an Ibiza-inspired tune driven by a smooth house groove, the original’s vocals, and a filtered piano chords. Have a listen to the remix, as well as the live set, and get more insight on the track from Sicarii below.

“This all began in Ibiza in 2013. I was hanging out at Sa Trinxa, this incredible bohemian beach bar on Las Salinas, and I was so inspired by the music I heard there. Smooth, funky house music with reverb-drenched pads that just perfectly fit the sunset scene’s incredible atmosphere. I channeled that vibe on what was originally intended as an original track. But when Interscope gave me the opportunity to remix Maroon 5’s “Sugar,” I realized how well Adam Levine’s vocals fit within what I’d made. I loved debuting it at Billboard Hot 100 Fest, and receiving official support from the band a few days later was an unexpected honor.” – Sicarii


Matt DiMona returns with another Feel Good House remix of Maroon 5’s iconic hit “She Will Be Loved”. By effortlessly weaving catchy chords with a thumping house beat, DiMona successfully reinvents the timeless sing-along with his signature indie house sound.  Grab the free download here!

“She Will Be Loved” is one of my all time favorite throwback pop guilty pleasures, and when I found the acapella online I knew I had to remix it. I’m a sucker for massive, hands-in-the-air chords, and when I paired them with some slow but groovy house beats (as well as some cheeky rain noise to coincide with the lyrics) I came up with a really interesting blend of sounds. Play this at your next pool party and belt out that hook- I know you know the words! – Matt DiMona
