"We are thrilled to get the chance to release this official remix with the legendary Paris Hilton! It wasn’t too long ago that she asked us to make her a remix of the original to play at Tomorrowland this year so, naturally, we jumped at the opportunity. We were over the moon when Paris loved the remix so much that she wanted to officially release it” - Electric Polar Bears
They established themselves in the dance music world with a unique mythology, claiming to have an Antarctic lab headquarters where they concoct perfect party-throwing strategies. They’ve fleshed-out this worldbuilding even further at their stand-out shows, where the polar bear-headed duo combine 3000 LED heads, powerful confetti cannons, dazzling lasers, frost machines, and a dedicated penguin parade backdropped by their vibrant, bouncy house beats.
As a result, the Electric Polar Bears’ infectious sound and magnetic performance style have led to collaborations with producers and vocalists such as Paris Hilton, Nitti Gritti, and TyDi; support from industry tastemakers like Afrojack, Alison Wonderland, Deorro, and Illenium; performances at festivals around the world including Decadence Arizona, Water Castle Carnival, and Global Dance Festival; and a showcase at Paris Hilton’s Neon Carnival.
Now, following the release of their uplifting, retro-futurist Where We Started EP, Electric Polar Bears reunite with pop culture icon Paris Hilton – who befriended the duo at EDC Las Vegas 2014 – for a remix of her 2023 single, “Hot One,” which has accumulated over a million streams. First-performed during Hilton’s Tomorrowland 2023 appearance, Electric Polar Bears’ “Hot One” remix retains the original’s euphoric club attitude while imbuing the pop single with the duo’s infectious dance music sensibilities.
The remix kicks off with Paris Hilton’s vocals accompanied by stuttering percussion and siren sound effects. It then builds with these elements and scintillating hi-hats before dropping into its dancefloor-igniting groove. Thumping kick drums, low bass tones, and synth stabs then create a lurid warehouse atmosphere, transforming the “Hot One” original into a house and techno masterclass.
Electric Polar Bears’ “Hot One” remix releases following the duo’s opening performance for Damon Shapre at ADE, and ahead of their performance at GIVE THANKS Festival 2023 on November 25 (sharing a lineup with Porter Robinson and Afrojack) and their special guest slot at Winter Lasterland on December 2 with Ekonovah.
Beyond packing out dance floors, Electric Polar Bears are dedicated to philanthropic endeavors and leveraging their platform to make a positive impact on the world. For their most recent charitable act, the duo have announced they will be donating 10 percent of their streaming revenue for the remainder of 2023 to Only.one’s Antarctica marine protection initiative – an initiative to protect vital Antarctic ecosystems and deliver the largest act of ocean protection in history.
