Kaytranada repurposes The Internet’s chill ‘Roll (Burbank Funk)’ into dancefloor ready heater

Summer’s coming, and if it’s anything like Kaytranada‘s latest remix, it’s going to be a hot one.

Off the heels of his dazzling collaboration with R&B/funk artist Robert Glasper for an ArtScience remixes EP, Kaytranda’s dropped off an official remix of The Internet’s “Roll (Burbank Funk),” which the group released last month. Expectedly, it’s an irresistible call to the dance floor.

Of course, remixing a track often proves a difficult task, but if anybody’s body of work were to speak to their mastery of the skill it would be Kaytranada. He’s brought us ample takes on artists all the way from Chance The Rapper to TLC. By sustaining the song’s integral element — its aqueous baseline — and substituting in sharp synths, Kaytranada’s proven himself as a master of funk — and master of all trades — as if it weren’t already crystal clear.

Outside Lands has revealed the 2018 lineup for its 11th installment in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park August 10-12.

Following a fervent 2017 edition of Gorillaz, The Who, and Metallica headlining, 2018 boasts a hefty onslaught of acts, and although the headliners see earlier appearances in the festival season  — The Weeknd at Coachella and Janet Jackson at both Panorama and FYF Fest  — the lineup remains rife with talent and excitement.

The Weeknd is set to perform, where he’s likely to play out his recent slew of new material which features the aid of Nicolas Jaar, Daft Punk‘s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and Gesaffelstein. Both Florence + The Machine and Janet Jackson front the bill with performances that will be nothing less than excellent and the lineup also promises a plethora of beloved dance acts. From ODESZA, Chromeo, and Claptone, to DJ Snake, Jamie xx, Tycho, CHVRCHES, James Blake, Gryffin, Lauv, and Whethan, Outside Lands is a music lover’s oeuvre in its late-summer installment.

More information and tickets, which are available starting at 10 a.m. PST April 5, can be found here.
