P. Reign feat. Drake & Future – DnF (XXYYXX Remix) [Free Download]
XXYYXX‘s exquisite experimental stylings have recently earned his work a spot in the forthcoming Grand Theft Auto V re-release’s extended soundtrack, on Flying Lotus’s radio station, FLYLO FM. The young Orlando producer’s smooth electronic sound has proven more than promising since his career’s beginning, and convincingly found great comfort intertwined with hip-hop and R&B influences.
XXYYXX now flexes his unique lo-fi artistry on P. Reign’s Dear America EP single “DnF”, featuring Drake and Future, for an impressively transformative remix. XXYYXX noticeably manipulates the vocals with a drop in key, and swaps the original’s foundational synth key melody for faint, atmospheric chords and a simple half-time beat. As the song progresses, XXYYXX introduces supplementary percussion and echoing sonar-esque pings while layers of synth harmonies steadily intensify for a satisfying finish.
