King Krule – “Neptune Estate (Travi$ Scott Remix)”

“Neptune Estate” was one of the more mellow cuts from King Krule’s already mellow 6 Feet Beneath The Moon — but it’s not so mellow anymore. Houston rapper Travi$ Scott has dropped a remix that incorporates the main melodic line from the original, a simple piano figure that rises hopefully before nestling back down into the beat. Scott’s version picks up with Krule’s vocals paired with that melodic line but orphaned from the stumbling drums that anchored the original. A short rhythmic interlude leads us into Travis’ bass-heavy verse, followed by a meandering deconstruction, each new section settling on a slightly different groove or texture snipped from the original. Listen.
