THEY. has already become the “it”

Having already collaborated with Skrillex and ZHU, toured with Bryson Tiller, and released their debut record Nü Religion: Hyena to widespread coverage and acclaim from outlets like NME, Pigeons & Planes, and XXL, THEY. needs little introduction. The Los Angeles based duo’s grunge&b blend has shown to be an utterly infectious sound that’s led to smashes like “U-RITE” already tallying up over 4.5 million streams on Spotify alone.

That blend of styles also makes their music ripe for remixes, so there’s no better producer to bring into the fold for a “U-RITE” flip than Louis Futon. Best known for his melodic collaborations with ROZES and RKCB, remixes of Gallant and GoldLink, and recent flips of Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar that have repeatedly topped the HypeMachine charts, he steps out of his comfort zone with a thunderous take on “U-RITE.” The remix transitions from a tense yet danceable build-up into a subwoofer-shaking drop, all the while maintaining THEY.’s always-identifiable swagger.

The remix is yet another step toward making 2017 a defining year for Futon as he’s currently wrapping up a headline tour before heading to Mamby and Splash House this summer with new tunes and fan favorites in tow. As for THEY., the duo recently finished a United States headliner of their own and are now in the midst of the Nü Religion Tour’s European leg (all remaining dates below).

Futon’s remix of “U-RITE” is out now via Mind of a Genius.
