With Phatchance holding the pen and One Above working on the beat, this remix always had the right people behind it – but was it enough to do something special to the original? Was it enough to successfully remix a song that’s gone absolutely crazy in the Australian music scene?
I think the answer to that is a resounding “YES”. This track once again displays just how underrated Chance is in the hip-hop scene – the verses he delivers on this reworking keep the same tone as the original, and the imagery is so evocative. Not only that, but rhythmically Chance’s flow is at its very best here. I don’t know how he has managed to take such a distinctive and popular track, and contribute so much to it lyrically – although I really shouldn’t be so surprised.
And you know what? People are going to whinge. I know they will. “Oh he ruined the original!” Just try to listen to it as a stand-alone track. Listen to it as something completely new. Chance’s lyrics and style cement him as one of my favourite hip-hop artists, and this remix is gold. You are allowed to like both the original and this, you know that right? We’re all friends here, we all wanna hear good music. Wally is such a cool dude he even gave Chance the stems to use for the mix. Don’t be hatin’. Just listen, and hopefully enjoy! (You can download it too if you want! It’s on Chance’s mixtape.)
Also! For any budding producers/musicians who want to remix Gotye’s track, he’s made the stems available over here on his website! [direct link to download the stems]
Hi guys, unfortunately it seems Gotye has either taken the stems down or they ran out of downloads – they’re no longer available. However someone found an alternate link down in the comments if you’re interested.
