iSpy Remix

Back in December 2016, two rising hip hop stars, KYLE and Lil Yachty teamed up to drop the radio sensation, "iSpy." You know, the pop-rap banger where 24 year old KYLE celebrates his ability to wife up a honey who doesn't get much social media interaction. It's decent. Definitely plays over and over (and over, and over, and over, and..) in your head. But, Two Friends just dropped a remix for the the bubbly track, giving it the classically funky treatment it needed. Two Friends is composed of, you guessed it, two friends based in L.A., Matt Halper and Eli Sones. The duo, formerly high school "bedroom producers," is not new to executing remixes for radio-popular songs, Two Friends even put their own spin on The Killers' "Mr. Brightside," which became a viral splash in the EDM community. This particular remix of "iSpy" is brassy, funky, and simply enough, fun. They took the established "party vibe" of the original track, added some jazz fusion ingredients, and out came a vibrant, effervescent remix that we didn't even know we needed. The remix is a Soundcloud summer blockbuster. It's just, happy. I am all about the indie-electronic, down tempo, romantic reverb, but there is really nothing like capturing the energy of a day-party and translating it into a song. Two Friends is proving that they are more than deserving of their 23 #1 spots on Hype Machine. Get jiggy with this new track, not because Beautiful Buzzz told you to, but because the hype is just totally real. Plus, they're like, super cute.
