The Weeknd x Ember Island – I Can’t Feel My Face (Kicks N Licks Remix) [Free Download]
The Weeknd‘s ubiquitous summer hit “I Can’t Feel My Face” has been remixed countless times, but one of the most memorable efforts was Swedish electro indie-pop group Ember Island‘s ethereally lovely cover. The unique take on the radio chart-topper inspired bass duo Kicks N Licks, who have now released their own rework of the blissful cover.
It’s a bold choice to remix an instantly-recognizable remix of a nine-month old song, but Kicks N Licks has been experimenting with a lighter sound in recent months, and their distinctive remix warrants its own release. Vocal harmonies, interesting percussion, and an unexpected breakdown bring a fresh sound to the Weeknd’s multi-platinum hit.
