MERK & KREMONT – Sad Story (Out Of Luck)




Merk & Kremont is an Italian DJ and production duo from Milan, consisting of Federico Mercuri and Giordano Cremona.

In 2014 they were included in the top 100 of the world’s DJ compiled by DJ Magazine in 94th place.

Merk & Kremont (Fede and Joe) first met in Fede’s basement in their home town of Milan.

They started talking music, soon realizing they had the same vision, and started working together …

… on a series of bootlegs all the way to their first successful original production, Tundra, in 2013.

The Italian duo’s musical influences range from Daft Punk to Fedde Le Grand, …

… and the great House classics – and although Joe started out producing Hip-Hop beats …

… whilst Fede was more into Pop–they found the perfect combination of ingredients to develop what is now recognized as their unique sound.

A sound that has been described as “grinding ‘n’ groovy”. Merk & Kremont have received support from huge acts such as …

… Avicii, Steve Angello, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Benny Benassi and many more.

They’ve been unleashing massive club hits for almost two years now and they still have plenty of ammo to shoot for the future.

Their tracks have featured on labels like Flamingo, Protocol, Size, Premiere, Revealed, Ultra and Spinnin’ and …

… their remix of “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit reached 1M downloads on Soundcloud, played by hundreds of djs all over the world.

The hit ‘Get Get Down’ – out on Spininnin Records – is something of a viral phenomenon thanks also to its insanely entertaining video …

… and its their first track to enter the Beatport chart in the top 10.

They have been taking their unique grindingly groovy sets all over Europe, Asia and North America…

… and have played, among others, Pacha (Ibiza), LIV (Miami), Drai’s (Las Vegas).

“Give Me Some” – is the first single they released in 2016 – It’s a collab with none other than the great Fedde Le Grand and it has been supported …

… by some of the greatest deejays all over the world –the track was released on Le Grand’s own label Darklight Records.

The two hits “Eyes” (ft Sunstars) and “Don’t Need No Money” (ft Steffen Morrison) were both released soon after on Spinnin Records.

During the summer Fede & Joe made people from all over the world dance to the catchy beat of their Italian anthem “Ciao” – …

… out on Musical Freedom and at the beginning of October 2016 the duo teamed up with Dannic and released “Music” on Fonk Records.

The sky is the limit for Merk & Kremont and they’re climbing the dance ladder one sick beat at a time.

From SPINNIN' Records

Merk & Kremont are an Italian production duo rising in popularity right now.

The guys can switch between crafting progressive house club music one minute to effortlessly catchy pop anthems the next.

The pair continuously demonstrate their diversity in crafting a wide variety of musical styles.

Their latest produced hit, Sad Story (Out of Luck), only continues to add to their growing roster of diverse tracks.

The duo focused their creative talent into sculpting this summer-anthem.

“Sad Story (Out of Luck)” surprises listeners with its bouncy melody despite the downcast song title.

This song is a remix of Ady Suleiman’s original “Sad Story”.

Remixing the song turned it into a sweetened, reenergized pop song.

Released through Spinnin’ Records, “Sad Story (Out of Luck)” expresses what it is like to feel broken inside from a series of unfortunate events in one’s life.

Indulgent vocals layer the foundation for the easily listenable track.

This is such a simple song and it is extremely catchy in the way that the melody follows a tune you wouldn’t expect.

The track starts with more mellow down-tempo sounds and builds itself up to a new pop-esque energy.

The song continues to flow in that way; slowing and picking back up over the duration.

Inspiration For The Remix:

“We were coming back from a gig and we heard the original song on the radio – we had to Shazam it…

…‘cause we had never heard of it, but we both fell in love with it instantly and decided we just had to make our own version! 

We actually laid the first tracks that same night, even though we were so tired, we just had to do it. 

This is the result, and it feels like our best work yet.” – Merk & Kremont

Merk & Kremont – Sad Story (Out Of Luck)


A sad story, might find it boring
Lost his Mum to a drug named heroin
Father’s gone, so Grandma’s left with everything
Two grandkids and a daughter’s coffin

I never really knew him when he was growing up
But I assumed that it was a little fucked
No parents for him to look up too
Just a brother whom I knew was a dodgy fuck

Shit, I used to think he was a dick
Tried too hard to fit
And never grow out of it

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

Never left his home town
That’s what probably did it
Never saw the other worlds
That he didn’t want to go and get it

Occupied by fitting in where minds
A small west, small things
Make the small things feel so tall

Will he ever change?
Well apparently
He reapplied for college and was waiting for his grades
It wouldn’t help his case
Oh, I couldn’t ever say

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

But wait my life’s out, a night out
Brothers in town, some doubt
A few fights, now kicked out clubs, shit the suns up
One looks all it took for his girl to cuss at another

Dudes being dudes
They blow at the chest to impress these breasts
That’d just started this mess
They must protect the damsel in distress
So other girls man decides to clench his fists

And then he threw and missed
Brothers hit, as did his
Dropped him quick, then one kick to the head
Oh shit other man is dead

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

And now he’s locked away
21 years of age
How many lives will go to waste?
As far as graves
Until I see some fucking change

Oh, and I don’t even know how
We continue to,
Fight one another now!

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck

Now he don’t talk too much, talk too much
He’s probably given up, given up
I think he’s had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck
