This one is bit out there. Darq E Freaker is a grime/dubstep artist out of the UK, and he recently linked with wunderkid Danny Brown for “Blueberry (Coke & Pills),” a jagged anthem for the two items in parenthesis. By now it’s no strange occurrence to see Danny talking about his pogo-like penis over some wonky bass notes; that kind of cross-genre appeal is part of what has made him a breakout.
This remix however, by Manchester’s Star Slinger, makes the original sound like boom-bap. It’s probably telling of my lack of club patronage, but I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of hi-hats and how much the synths made me want to get a pacifier and a PLU bracelet by the end of the song. The horn stabs are probably my favorite part of the remix. You’ll most likely enjoy this best in a hot, loud, crowded room with some happy pills.
