NYC-via-Philly producer LSDXOXO has put his spin on Kanye West’s “Freestyle 4,” giving the frenetic cut an injection of Baltimore club vibes.
Speaking to The FADER, LSDXOXO said:
Remixing “Freestyle 4” made sense to me because initially when I heard it, the track reminded me of a Bernard Herrmann composition. Some of my favorite Baltimore club music from a while back sampled horror movie scores, and I wanted to invoke that same spirit and sound with this edit. The vibe of Kanye’s original track is super agro-hetero, and I felt compelled to make it more relatable.
The end result makes for a remix that brings structure to a song literally based on a stream of consciousness. Listen to the remix below and let us know what you think. If it isn’t your cup of tea, you can always revisit Tyler, the Creator’s remix.
