Mr. Carmack blurs genres in his treatment of Chromeo’s funk-driven classic, ‘Fancy Footwork’
Ten years have passed since Chromeo released their funk-driven single, “Fast Forward.” To celebrate the song’s 10th anniversary, the Canadian electro-funk duo have enlisted the genre-blurring talents of Mr. Carmack to breathe new life into the 2007 original.
Mr. Carmack treats “Fast Forward” carefully, holding onto the track’s original rock ‘n’ roll vibes and heavily synthesized funky melodies while injecting the track with more progressive qualities. Abounding on Carmack’s chilled-out rendition are toybox synth designs and heavy, atmospheric undertones. The product is a meticulous, forward-thinking remix that fuses elements of hip-hop, future bass, and chill trap, with changing glitch-inspired tempos.
