Drake (Feat. the Weeknd) - Crew Love (Shlohmo Remix)
Here it is, the first piece of actual music posted on my blog.
The best remixes both provide a new POV on a track and flesh out its best qualities. L.A. producer Shlohmo has turned “Crew Love,” a highlight from Drake’s overlong-but-still-good Take Care, and injected a large dose of codeine directly into its femoral artery. The opening drum salvo, peppy - at least for the Weeknd - in the original track, takes on a languid, heavy-lidded quality in Shlohmo’s version, especially when surrounded by evil-sounding synths and those firefly drips of percussion. Drake, typically the weakest part of his own tracks, spits a fine verse on “Love,” now further improved by being chopped & screwed. This was really a Weeknd track to begin with, and the remix cements that. Smoke some weed under star projectors.
(PS - Yep, the title’s a Coach Taylor reference.)
