THEY. drop off new remix of Charli XCX hit ‘Boys’

THEY. stand with one foot in the electronic classification and another firmly planted in hip-hop territory, yet the LA-based producer duo refuse to confirm to either. Which is probably what makes their brand of brooding, urban hip-hop and trap so sophisticated yet altogether absorbing. Following the Mind of a Genius-signed pair’s 14-track Nü Religion: Hyena LP, THEY. are closing out the year with a new remix, finding the perfect specimen in Charli XCX‘s summer hit “Boys.”

Earlier this year, the UK-bred songwriter recruited everyone from Diplo and Flume to Mark Ronson and Chromeo for the “Boys” video, and now the track is getting a deservedly extended shelf life by way of THEY. Laying down their snappy, percussive production style around the track’s infectious vocal offerings, THEY. swap out the original mix’s 8-bit accents and snares for tight hi-hat rolls, going with a futuristic R&B/pop theme on their remix that does Charli XCX justice on one of her biggest tracks to date.
