Released in June, Brooklyn-based dream pop artist Instupendo's "Earring" is a lush and melodic moment of introspection and bliss. In the hands of Dylan Brady of 100 Gecs, however, it is transformed into a different beast entirely. Gecs fans will instantly recognize the corrugated beats, pitch-shifted vocals, and lurching combo and synths and drum sounds that leave you both giddy and queasy in equal measure. "I'm an accessory, lost in a fantasy, what a wonderful world," Instupendo sings harmoniously as the world falls in around him.
The remix is the first from Instupendo's forthcoming Bbg Remixed: R project, a collection of remixes of 2019 EP Boys By Girls. Speaking to The FADER, Instupendo said: "I'm glad Dylan didn't hold anything back on this remix. I wasn't sure what to expect, but when he first sent it over, five glitter-bursting seconds in, I realized I had every reason to be excited -- it's 100% Dylan Brady."
You can check it out below and catch Instupendo on tour with Madeon this month. 100 Gecs, meanwhile, are currently on the road with Brockhampton as part of their North American tour.
