XXYYXX Remixes Ryan Hemsworth’s ‘Snow In Newark’
Ryan Hemsworth feat. Dawn Golden - Snow In Newark (XXYYXX Remix)

XXYYXX gave Snow In Newark a makeover, and the result is a moody, R&B-infused track that completely transforms Ryan Hemsworth‘s original.

At just 18 years old, Orlando-based producer XXYYXX (pictured) has already solidified quite a reputation for his eclectic beats, and he showcases his unique sound here by turning this emotive, melancholy track into a futuristic production. Marcel Everett’s spin is marked by a beat full of slow, rolling bass, which gives the remix a chilly quality until it gives way to a cascade of synths at the 1:45-minute mark. Original vocals from Dawn Golden are nearly unrecognizable, as Everett coats them in a dark, pitched-out tone that further adds to the track’s obscure vibe.

No word on a release date for the remix, but you can check out more from XXYYXX on SoundCloud.
