As the Internet, music world and virtually all of planet Earth lose their minds over the release of Drake‘s fourth studio album Views, the underground beatmaking circuit has been quietly celebrating a recent flip of one of the rapper’s most noteworthy tracks, “Summer Sixteen,” by producer KRNE.
Released today on his Bandcamp page as a “name your price” download, the remix comes as a gritty and powerful rework of the original. It maintains the vocal-centered energy of the track while adding countless layers of visceral percussion strikes and brooding synths, leaving the structure mostly in tact. The result is an instantly familiar yet inspiring, fresh take on a track we’ve all come to know.
