The Gorillaz were legendary at Outside Lands Music Festival just a little over a week ago. Some say their Outside Lands performance was by far better than their Coachella ones. I wouldn’t be surprised, if so. Damon Albarn and his band lead a flurry of sensational guest artists on a massive headlining adventure that night, and despite how tired I was, and how cold it was (as usual) at Golden Gate Park, I found myself fixated till the very end of that stunning set. Those familiar with the songs off recent Gorillaz album Humanz know how upbeat and energetic many of its genre defying tracks are. Today, we delve into a remix of one such track, Strobelite featuring Peven Everett, by none other than esteemed and adored Canadian production prodigy Kaytranada. The producer is the perfect artist to tap for a Gorillaz remix. He leads the charge with a chic and stylish transformation of Strobelight that takes full advantage of its soulful R&B swagger. The original is available on iTunes, here.
