Best Friend (A-Trak & Gladiator Remix)
A-Trak has spent the past few years building a reputation as one of the best production minds in the business. His label Fool’s Gold is thriving and he has a following to rival his older brother Dave1 (of Chromeo fame). His newest release is a tag-team remix of Foster The People‘s “Best Friend” created with labelmates gLAdiator. In their hands, the poppy psych-rock of the original is transformed into a banger with a stuttering beat and blasting synths. Mark Foster’s falsetto vocals prove to be a perfect fit for all manner of looping and effects, and the chorus of “When your best friend’s all strung out” doesn’t even sound particularly out of place for this hard partying rework. Check it out below.
