With their latest remix, up and coming San Francisco duo, Wild Boyz!, takes Lorde’s track ‘Royals’ and transforms it into a dubby drumstep dream with a hint of retro flair.
The introduction of Wild Boyz!’s ‘Royals’ remix stays true to the original mix’s down-tempo beat but layers in a gentle drum kick. The track continues to incorporate a delicate retro synthesized sound that allows Lorde’s vocals to remain in the spotlight. Around the 1:30 mark, Wild Boyz! builds us up to a fantastic grumbling break down; they effectively incorporate their own electronic flair while still remaining true to the track’s aesthetic appeal. The dubby drumstep rift subdues for a moment to showcase Lorde’s vocals once more but immediate transitions into another superb breakdown at the 2:30 mark. The track rounds out by repeating its retro vibes and calming dubby rifts leading to its end.
Wild Boyz!’s ‘Royals’ remix leaves us with high hopes for the duo and we expect great productions from them in the future! Check out the rest of their soundcloud to further explore their capabilities.
