In case the 40-festival tour hip-hop duo OutKast is embarking on didn’t tip you off, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the ATLiens arrival into our collective consciousness. While everyone is celebrating this glorious occasion, producer Kero One takes it a step further by remixing ‘Kast’s 2004 single “Roses” (from the GRAMMY-winning Speakerboxxx/The Love Below) one mo’ gin.
Kero’s original 2007 remix took Andre 3000 and Big Boi‘s banger and smoothed it out a bit with ’80s-sounding synths and old soul drums. For the 2014 update, Kero keeps most of the instrumentation but reprograms the drums and re-engineered it for a bit more aggressive bump that’d fit blasting from your speakers or out on the dance floor. With just the right amount of stank on it, were sure that this is one that ‘Kast would definitely approve of.
