[TMN Premiere] Drop City Yacht Club – Crickets (EELEYE Remix)

Drop City Yacht Club
Crickets (EELEYE Remix)

London based producer, EELEYE, an artist for whom we have something of a musical crush on, just sent us his latest track. An atmospheric take on freshly minted hip-hop triumvirate Drop City Yacht Club‘s first single “Crickets”, the beat maestro has our collective attention once again. R&B vocalist du-jour Jeremih – who has been increasingly omnipresent in the electronic scene on the back of recent collaborative live sets performed with Shlohmo – lends his harmonious coo to the track perfectly, and EELEYE has taken wise advantage of it by stripping down the original’s most boisterous points and placing those vocals in the driver’s seat. EELEYE’s remix feels like an errant Summer wind has been blown through every piece of instrumentation on the original, while an added drum kick only supports the airy vibe. This particular track must have looped on our in-house monitors twenty times before we temporarily let down our Ninja-Guard to share it with such a wise and faithful community. Check out EELEYE’s remix of “Crickets” above, watch the official music video for “Crickets” below and as always, let us know how we did.
