Suppose Calvin Harris doesn’t need much help in the hit-making department. He’s got it covered and we’ll be reaping the benefits all summer long. But before we get to his moment full-realized resurgence, a west coast remix specialist has given the track a soulful new spin for your poolside enjoyment.
Zikomo has earned his stripes with irresistible recalibrations of Childish Gambino‘s “Terrified,” Soul-II-Soul‘s classic “Back To Life” and The Weeknd‘s recent Daft Punk collaboration “I Feel It Coming.” All of which are more than ready for some hotter-than-July rotations. His take on “Slide” strips it of its bubblegum radio pop shades, offering syrupy rhodes and a driving four-to-the-floor backbone fit for late nights on rooftops two-stepping the night away while nursing a red cup of your preferred poison. If you’re one for a good house flip a la Kaytranada, Zikomo’s got just the thing to hold you over.
So welcome the summer with open arms. Hear the remix of Calvin Harris and Frank Ocean’s “Slide” that won’t escape you in these warmer months and hold tight for another house-laced treatment from Zikomo in the weeks and months ahead. Jump over to his Soundcloud page to get properly acquainted.
