Having already collaborated with Skrillex and ZHU, toured with Bryson Tiller, and released their debut record Nü Religion: Hyena to widespread coverage and acclaim from outlets like NME, Pigeons & Planes, and XXL, THEY. needs little introduction. The Los Angeles based duo’s grunge&b blend has shown to be an utterly infectious sound that’s led to smashes like “U-RITE” already tallying up over 4.5 million streams on Spotify alone.
That blend of styles also makes their music ripe for remixes, so there’s no better producer to bring into the fold for a “U-RITE” remix than Louis Futon. Best known for his melodic collaborations with ROZES and RKCB, remixes of Gallant and GoldLink, and recent flips of Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar that have repeatedly topped the HypeMachine charts, he steps out of his comfort zone with a thunderous take on “U-RITE.” The remix transitions from a tense yet danceable build-up into a subwoofer-shaking drop, all the while maintaining THEY.’s always-identifiable swagger.
THEY. are currently wrapping up their Nü Religion Tour with a few dates left here.
Futon’s remix of “U-RITE” drops Tuesday, May 23rd via Mind of a Genius.
