Kaytranada Gets Recruited By Gorillaz For Funky Remix Of "Strobelite"

Kaytranada Gorillaz

Don’t freak out, but Kaytranada has just remixed Gorillaz’ song “Strobelite”. Kaytranada has been all over the place this year having collaborations with Chance The Rapper, Nick Murphy, Gold Link and more. And of course, Gorillaz have had a major year dropping their acclaimed album Humanz and putting together their own festival Demon Dayz. Gorillaz and Kaytranada pairing up for an official remix is a TSIS dream come true and the final product is as great as we expected. 

The original version of “Strobelite” was one of the more popular cuts from Humanz and features soulful vocals from Peven Everett. Kaytranada kept the funky vibe for his remix but added a twist with whirling synths and scattered percussion. Kaytranada also puts a bunch of emphasis around the female choral throughout the remix creating a dramatic atmosphere. Remixing Gorillaz is no easy task, but Kaytranada proved himself worthy with his “Strobelite” remix. Enjoy!

There’s no dispute that 2017 has been the year of the Gorillaz. After a long hiatus the group burst back onto the scene this year with the release of their Humanz album, spearheading one of the biggest album rollouts we’ve ever seen and announcing their inaugural Demon Dayz festival in England, which took place on June 10.

Over a month later Red Bull Music & Culture has finally uploaded Gorillaz’s exciting 2-hour performance from the festival, and it’s everything we hoped it’d be and more. Between the visuals, guest artists, the sunset in the background, the crowd singing along to every word and, of course, the music, everything about the set was incredible. The group played a diverse mix of both Humanz tracks and older songs, starting with “Ascension” and keeping the energy high from there on out. Be sure to check out the set ASAP – it’s only available for a 2-week exclusive. Enjoy!
