For the past couple weeks, Drake‘s Hold On, Were Goin Home has been running through my head on more or less constant repeat. And I don’t even mind—the song is that f**king addictive, thanks in large part to Nineteen85 and Noah “40” Shebib‘s deft production. On his new remix of the cut, producer Kastle translates the record into a higher-octane EDM lexicon, while retaining the warmth and many of the aural quirks that made made the original great. A clattering four-on-the-four rhythm section backs Drizzy’s smooth vocals, which Kastle slices and rearranges into a variety of catchy new configurations. This remix isn’t part of a larger project, but fans can, of course, find the original on Aubrey Graham’s newly-released junior set, Nothing Was the Same.
