In its original incarnation, Electric Guest’s “The Bait” is a swinging, commercial-friendly, Gnarls Barkley-meets-West Side Story pop single, but this remix by Shlohmo flips it big time. Here, the track’s suspended deep underwater, pulled down into newly woozy and thick instrumentation and strapped to a crisp and skittery beat. It’s as slinky and authoritative and late-night as you’d expect from the producer who brought you two of the best Jeremih collaborations known to trap-addicted man.
Shlohmo just announced a fall tour with XXYYXX.
