I’ve gotten into remixes this year in a way I never was previously. They have expanded my horizons a bit, which is always a good thing no matter how you slice it. There are a metric ton of them out there, and even being a blog that is not focused on electronic music like most indie blogs are nowadays, I probably receive remixes in more than a third of my submissions versus original works.
There are a lot of derivatives, and a lot of bad remixes. This remix is neither of those. It’s up there with the best remixes I’ve heard this year. It takes the original, raw version and sexes it up.
I’m as well versed in Diplo as you likely are in the inner workings of the New Jersey Devils trap style defense in the 90’s. I don’t need to be a guru to know what’s good, though. Its like filling your ears with something you love, like money or peanut butter, and letting it go to your brain. Shit’s good. The only reason it’s not got a note is cause I don’t have my them at hand.
