Chad Hugo (aka the other half of The Neptunes) put his touch on Little Dragon‘s “Killing Me.” What was once a brooding electronic blues joint got flipped into a sunny synth-pop offering, injecting the track with a swirl of bright synthscapes and four-to-the-floor drum programming, letting the sweetness of Yukimi‘s layered vocal treatment shine through. While he remains a bit on the reclusive side, we have gotten word in the past there’s been a bit of a Neptunes relaunch (of sorts) underway with Pusha T in the studio. So there’s that. But who knows what’ll come of it. In any case, peep the mighty Chad Hugo’s latest rework with his flip of Little Dragon’s “Killing Me” below.
