The heat from Chicago continues to welter in. Today, Chicago based producer Smoko Ono, an affiliate of Chance The Rapper and Vic Mena's collective Save Money, released the official remix for “Circles,” the breakout hit from fellow Chicago native SD. Often found on stage backing Mensa and Towkio, Smoko's production skills have not gone unnoticed—he's received major nods for his remixes of Tinashe’s “All Hands on Deck” and Mensa’s “Wimme Nah.”
The remix was co-produced by L.A.'s Mr. Carmack, who helps transition the track from a trap-house party anthem to a certified Chicago club banger—and it's got SD's seal of approval: "This new remix sounds like some 3-dimensional paradigm mixed with all the elements of the old track by Omen and AudioBLK, but pushed to a different futuristic planet," SD told The FADER. It seems that the admiration goes both ways, according to Smoko: "I was really excited for the opportunity to remix 'Circles' because it's one of my favorite songs out and to work on it with a producer as talented as Carmack—I knew it was gonna nothing but heat." This remix is living proof that good things really do come in threes.
