xx

The xx has inspired an infinite number of remixes, so what’s another one? Some time ago, The xx covered Aaliyah‘s “Hot Like Fire” and created a delicate, airy thing. Chicago’s BeazyTymes, a 17-year-old producer who has an affinity for trap, filters Aaliyah’s song one more time and provides it with a gentle, skittering beat. The ethereal quality from the cover still remains, but this remix pulls the floating cover back down to earth, and it works. Listen to BeazyTymes’ remix below.
