Mocki – Weekend (Jai Wolf Remix)
Kitsune’s reign as one of Europe’s finest electronic dance outlets comes through two key assets: an ear for next generation talent and an ability to score versatile remix packages every time. It’s the turn of Long Island native Jai Wolf to pitch for the French institution, who lands off the heels of an official remix of Alesso’s “Heroes” to reclaim his place as one of the nation’s most promising trap prospects of the time.
Held against Mocki’s accomplished indie dance etiquette, Wolf’s take on proceedings holds the uplifting quality of “Weekend” with percussively charged form, keeping things as melodically charged as we have come to expect from the American talent. Few artists have managed to channel experimental vibes without compromising on overall quality, but this particular specimen of next generation talent just keeps hitting the ball out of the park. There’s an overriding sense that the trap world is due a universal epiphany. In the early moments of 2015, Jai Wolf sounds like a renaissance man on the rise.
