Well, this is a treat.
A couple of days ago, the Gorillaz started teasing a Kaytranada remix of their latest single “Strobelite.” As promised, the song dropped at midnight. And as expected it’s awesome.
The original “Strobelite,” which is on the Humanz album and which features Peven Everett, has a funky, old school bop to it. Kaytranada turns the funky meter up even higher but adds a touch of soul to the track.
It seems like the Gorillaz have been letting producers go on a remixing streak. Last week, Cadenza dropped a “dancehall remix” of another “Humanz stand out: “Saturnz Barz.”
