After last week’s Wave Racer remix, we are now treated to an A-Trak & gLAdiator remix of Foster The People‘s new single and it’s a free download. It’s a collaboration that, like the Low Pros EP A-Trak did with Lex Luger, equals less than the sum of it’s parts. The start is amazing and the first drop punches you in the face very nicely but I find that after that the track just kinda does the same thing repeatedly until the end. Don’t get me wrong. Ain’t hating on A-Trak. Collabs he’s done like Duck Sauce tend to be much much more than the sum of their already awesome parts. No doubt this is a fine track if you were looking for a trappier version of this song, but could we have been given a bit more?
