Mad Decent boss-man Diplo teamed up with padawan powerhouse Ookay to give one of Avicii’s latest a peak-time trap remix.
Master and apprentice mess with the vocal track a bit while retaining the piano melody and turning the main section into a turnt-up torso-twister in their take on the big room groove. Upping the BPM to about 144 and infusing some typical trap percussion takes the thoughtful composition into party-starter territory, and with a near-weightless vocal track like the one found here, it would serve just as well as a hands-up, euphoric party-ender. Here’s hoping Diplo will spend more sessions with his Mad Decent hopefuls, resulting in a steady stream of out-of-the-box remixes and collaborations.
No more info on this one, other than the top-notch toosh we’re gifted as the cover art, but check back. You really never know what Diplo might make into a habit… or album.
