Over the last couple of weeks, Taylor Swift’s old track “Love Story” has turned out to be a major hit on TikTok whose credit goes to Thadeus Labuszewski. But who’s the guy mentioned here? You can find him by the name of Disco Lines on the application.
While Thadeus, a 22-year-old music producer was interviewed by BuzzFeed, he remarked, “This all came out of nowhere. It was totally unexpected and really amazing,” as his song continues to feature in more than 1.5 million videos on TikTok.
Thadeus developed his passion for music at the age of 4. In the initial days of college, he launched the “Disco Lines” project to produce music. Since then, he has gone for several artists, including Hippie Sabotage, Elephante, PLS&TY, Dombresky, Cut Snake, Justin Jay, and others.
A true blend
While Disco Lines’ “Love Story” remix has scaled a new height in recent times, it was actually released in April last year. There, he remixed the 2008 Taylor Swift song for a tutorial clip on his YouTube channel. Speaking within the context, Thadeus said, “I produced the entire song while recording the video in only an hour. After editing, I uploaded it to my YouTube and SoundCloud and thought nothing of it”.
Following the trend
Cut to the present, Disco Lines’ track has gone viral all of a sudden through the popular “Love Story” challenge — a recent trend that kicked off when TikTok user @ethanishung uploaded the comedic video matched with hip-thrusts. Now, the dare has become a dance trend for TikTokers as they upload an ordinary video led by a series of belligerent slings. Apart from that, if we consider the signature of the most admired trend, it comes with pushing away the camera until the video cuts to jabber.
