Kid Cudi – Symphonies (Kill Them With Colour) [Awesome Remix]

GIVE ME SYMPHONIES! One of the most addicting hooks from London musicians Dan Black with his collaboration with Kid Cudi on the song “Symphonies” that we blogged a few months ago. While Dada Life’s remix of this very song was much more drilling with a heavy steady bass and primarily using Dan’s vocals, The revised version of Kill Them With Colour highlights Cudi’s rapid fire rhymes and layers it with a huge wave of overstretched electronic melodies that even though it heavily saturates the track, the end result feels clean and easily digestible.

A banger? I wouldn’t go as far as considering it as one but there is enough aggression here to make it on the dance floor.

[Fresh] Dan Black – Symphonies Feat Kid Cudi

Dan Black, a spunky Londoner, first acquired fame with his single “HYPNTZ” in which he took the lyrics to Biggie’s “Hypnotize” and sang it over the drum sample from Umbrella. His singing of The Notorious BIG’s lyrics resulted in a quirky but memorable melody and it became a modest success on YouTube.

“Symphonies” is basically a re-imagining of “HYPNTZ”, with Biggie’s lyrics removed completely and replaced with surrealist lyrics that those Englishmen do so well. Miraculously, Dan Black manages to pull this track off, neither sounding like a wannabe rapper or an ignorant hipster. It’s easy to imagine American record labels fretting over the North American release of Dan Black’s material and throwing in Kid Cudi for good measure; however, Cudi fits in well in the track and only lifts it further into the ether. It’s an enjoyable track.
