Feature 003: The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk - Starboy (Kapo remix)
In light of The Weeknd's collaboration with the world's most renowned electronic music group, Daft Punk, "Starboy" was released in anticipation of heavy remix treatment. And while Kygo delivered his signature lighthearted, tropical interpretation, a slew of young bedroom producers jumped on a chance to shine.
Kapo, known mostly for his latin-influenced Moombahton productions, flipped the massive hit into an eerily rhythmic club banger. It retains the dark essence of The Weeknd's pivoting career, and even expedites the process. Kapo replaced The Weeknd's derisive "Ha-Ha-Has" with a conniving melody of his own, allowing his musical voice to emerge in the frontline. With its call and response duet of The Weeknd vocals and Kapo melodies, a harmonious force is what drives this remix.
