k?d comes in hot with a remix of a hardstyle classic
Though hardstyle music does not cross paths with the American dance music scene too frequently, k?d may be trying to change that. Taking on the classic hardstyle anthem, “HAHAHA” by SMF, k?d has put his mid-tempo spin on the track to make a truly unique offering.
Slowing hardstyle’s unrelenting bounce down a few notches, k?d pulls in comical vocals from the original, surrounding them with clean synths and an energetic build, before dropping into hard hitting groove that would make even REZZ blush. Paying homage to SMF’s track, k?d laces the breakdown with their iconic melody before doubling down on a truly devious finale for the song. It seems hardstyle fits quite well in a pitched-down format, when edited with the expertise that k?d brings to the table.
