The kind folks at The FADER are just giving and giving this holiday season, celebrating their new mobile app with ten remixes of ten rappers by ten producers. Rolling in at number nine, Clams Casino (aka Mike Volpe) brings his New Jersey magic to Big K.R.I.T.’s “Moon & Stars.”
Playing off K.R.I.T.’s original breeziness, Volpe amps up the chillwave factor (and you thought that wasn’t possible) with ambient synths carrying an upbeat-without-really-being-upbeat rhythm. It’s like the difference between reclining on the hood of your car gazing at nature’s bounty across a scenic overlook and reclining on the hood of your car gazing at nature’s bounty across a scenic overlook after drinking four cups of coffee. Recommended for anyone interested in completely checking out on whatever needs to get done today. Oh, also anyone seduced by lines like, “and you feelin’ me too / I mean literally / you rubbin’ my nuts, you tickle the d.” Que romántico, no?
