Midnight Kids revamp P!nk and Khalid’s ‘Hurts 2B Human’MidnightKids CELstudios 1

Midnight Kids are flourishing quickly thanks to their enamoring take on pop and commercial crossover releases. Despite now having a growing slate of original releases under their belts,  Kyle Girard and Dylan Lee have resumed their remix run, this time taking on P!nk and Khalid’s, “Hurts 2B Human.”

The song is the title release on P!nk’s recent LP, Hurts 2B Human, and Midnight Kids’ new revamp adds an energetic electronic layer that contrasts from the acoustic and vocal-led nature of the original. What is originally a sultry and subtle crossover cut is transformed by a building melodic undertone that yields a euphoric release with an immense break. The duo prove their ability to tastefully add upbeat electronic tropes to a pop hit, creating the perfect blend of styles for a live set or radio play.

Midnight Kids teased the release on their social media, touting their latest as, “the biggest remix we’ve ever done,” and the final product certainly lives up to the producers’ sentiments.
