Amongst Soulection‘s legion of vibes-for-days producers and selectors, one Esta has emerged as perhaps their greatest purveyor of reimagined pop and r&b hits. He’s touched cuts from Kali Uchis, Rihanna, Vic Mensa, Kehlani and infused them with the oceanic goodness of his chilled-out west coast trap steez. His latest soiree in the art of the remix finds him taking on Fetty Wap‘s smash hit “1738” AKA “Trap Queen.” Upon a bed of bright piano trills and pitter-pattering hi-hats, modulating Fetty’s heavy hook into a warbled and wonderful clincher. It’s a short one, no doubt, but a highly-satisfying compliment to a track that’s owned the radio since its unveiling, and is certainly more enriching than the original, no matter how hard you ride for the Fetty hive. You can hear Esta’s blazing remix of Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” below, but if you’re looking for a proper intro to Esta’s catalogue, head over to his Soundcloud, press play and let the vibes consume you as you slip into the weekend. You can also catch Esta spinning at Fairplex in Pomona, CA on November 1st to get a live and direct taste of one of the Soulection crew’s finest.
