A crop of Weeknd remixes have been sproutin’ up since The Weeknd’s first mixtape, House of Balloons, dropped just under two months ago. However, none have done any real justice to their original’s, up until possibly now.
Downpour’s remix is an even grimier take on The Weeknd’s “High For This”, taking Abel’s sorrowed vocals into an even more hellish dubstep grind. * if you don’t do dustep, you won’t like this. ** oh, and you should be high for this
In other Weeknd updates, a recent Twitter post indicated the second mixtape, Thursday, is right around the corner – which’ll be the second installment in The Weeknd’s, starwars trilogy of music, ‘balloon trilogy’ – thank you twitter, haha ;) Let’s hope it drops this Thursday… no more teasing us!
The Weeknd – The Morning (Dolor Remix)
This one deserves credit too, and as much as I like it, (1) it doesn’t compare shit to the original, (2) doesn’t incorporate the best parts of the original.
