You’ve never heard a song quite like Skrillex‘ mega-collab “Midnight Hour” with Boys Noize and Ty Dolla $ign. It’s equal parts synth-ballad, booty-bass club knocker and acid house experiment. It’s a grower of a tune and it’s definitely something to move the needle forward.
Today, Louis the Child grabs that needle and pulls it toward the bedroom with a sensual, red-light remix.
“We’ve been absolutely obsessed with ‘Midnight Hour’ since it came out,” the duo tells Billboard Dance. “We made this remix to play at our sows and loved it so much that we decided to release it.”
The Chicago-duo is known for vibrant dance-pop cuts “Better Not” and “It’s Strange,” but this remix leaves the playground vibes in the toy box, opting instead for smoky-eye sax samples, exotic flutes and wonky future beats. Ty Dolla $ign’s verses get you all steamy, but the instantly-recognizable City Girls sample kicks things into hyperdrive on the hook.
This is one to fog the windows, and since it’s a free download, you’ve got not reason not to ride with it. Listen to Louis The Child’s remix of “Midnight Hour” below, and check the duo’s full list of fall 2020 tour dates after the jump.
