A mixtape and Remix Friday all in one day!?! Hopefully you don’t get a case of music overload.
Another week with a healthy mix of production, but this week focuses mostly on established talents re-imagining music in their own sound. The remix gods awoke Holy Ghost! to immensely improve Katy Perry’s “Birthday”, while ODESZA lent their skills to the already persuasive “Faded” by ZHU. Kaytranada continued to show his dominance on Chet Faker’s “Talk Is Cheap”, but diversified and made percussion more of a focus than his typical fare. JayeL Audio favorites Fred Falke, Amtrac, Dave Edwards dabble with Bastille, Client Liason and The Knocks in fine fashion, while DJAA (not to be confused with my dude Double A) adds some house influence to “I Was A Fool”. Ryan Riot’s remix of OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” seemed extra appropriate with the announcement of a 3 night homecoming for the ATLiens this September (the additions of Kid Cudi and Childish Gambino was an extra kick in the balls for this guy). To all my friends in Atlanta who are going to the show: expect me to grill you for each and every detail.
