Gorillaz Share Funky New Version Of “Andromeda” Feat. DRAM Following Recent Grammy Nomination

DRAM Gorillaz

2017 has been a hell of a comeback year for Gorillaz. Between dropping their 26-track Humanz album to spearheading their Demon Dayz festival (find that performance here) and everything in between, the group has gone above and beyond to ensure the most holistic music-listening experience possible for their fans.

One of the most loved songs off Humanz was no doubt the out-of-this world “Andromeda” feat. DRAM, and after their recent Grammy nominations for both Best Dance Recording and Best Alternative Album, the group has shared an alternate version of the track. This version takes things in a funkier, more 80s-infused direction that features much more of DRAM’s silky smooth vocals. The lush synth melodies and fast-paced percussion make for a slightly more upbeat vibe that goes toe-to-toe with the original in its own unique way.

This version of “Andromeda” is off the Humanz Super Deluxe Vinyl Box Set, which you can purchase here. For now, stream the new track below and enjoy!

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!
