Beat-lovers are still waiting with bated breath for the next project from young Orlando producer Marcel Everett, better known as XXYYXX. In the meantime though, we've got his new remix of singer-songwriter SIVIK's latest single "U Got." XXYYXX bumps up the tempo, stripping away the anthemic synth-pop production of the original in favor of jittery kick patterns and undulating synths. Over this R&B-leaning production, you wouldn't be faulted for mistaking SIVIK's falsetto for that of The Weeknd.
"After releasing my single 'High,' I became acquainted with XXYYXX. He's so dope and sonically creative," SIVIK told The FADER in an email. "Because we both vibe so well musically we thought it would be fun to collaborate with a remix. XXYYXX provides a new sonic landscape to 'U Got' that I really dig. I think it even helps give the song somewhat of a new point of view." Stream the remix below.
