South London’s Deadboy has been around for a while but only has three releases to his name. He has however produced some brilliant remixes.
Today he’s dropped a take on Charli XCX’s “You’re The One” and it made me think back to a song that I was enamored by a year or so ago, and that is his remix of Drake’s “Fireworks”, not that Drake himself features in it at all.
The song exclusively features Alicia Key’s chorus, but in natural Deadboy style Alicia finds herself not sounding like she used to. Prone to vocal shifts he also includes his usual garage-drums and it culminates in 6 minutes of dreamlike chillwave.
