XO Tour Llif3 (Y2K Trap Remix) – Lil’ Uzi Vert
Y2K delivers a great and satisfying remix of Lil’ Uzi Vert’s 2017 classic XO Tour Llif3. After attending the Shaky Beats Festival here in Atlanta, I had to search out and find the original song after The Chainsmokers dropped their own remix of it on Day 3 of the fest.
The original while deep and catchy, is not really dance-able, so naturally I had to find a remix that was. Y2K’s is the most noteworthy.
Leaving most of the composition of the original intact, he adds a Western style riff in the beginning, a but more bass & trap snare, and hauntingly good effects over the chorus/hooks.
At Shaky Beats it was actually the Chainsmokers who dropped this song and remixed it. I will post it later and though their remix was epic it was more like a sample of the original over their own original trap production not a real remix like this one. Alas, this is the case in EDM often where you have remixes that fully incorporate the original with new sounds and remixes that “hint” at their source material but are basically an entirely new song.
