From what I’ve listened to from Stooki Sound, the duo is focused on some pretty trapped out beats. However, faced with a remix of The Weeknd, they turned the hype down an appropriate amount and came away with one of my favorite tracks they’ve ever put out.
“The Hills” is rumored to be the first single from The Weeknd’s second studio album (though he’s released three mixtapes and a compilation album), making this remix even more special. The original tune is already pretty trapped out – at least by pop standards. Stooki Sound boosts the bass, slows the tempo even further, and throws on some supplementary 808s. This is more of an edit than a remix, but I’m not complaining. It’s chill af.
