Janelle Monáe featuring Big Boi - Tightrope (Oliver Nelson Remix)

Swedish beat virtuoso Oliver Smith shares his latest creation right in time for this year’s Easter season. Adding to his already impressive catalog of versatile remix work, Smith adds a groove-heavy rendition of Janelle Monáe’s The ArchAndroid-lead single “Tightrope” featuring Big Boi. The already danceable original receives a further boost through an infusion of french funk and nu disco elements that seems to be suitable for international dancefloors. Tune in below.
