It looks like Mr. Carmack is saving his hardest and heaviest tunes for the final stretch of 2017. Just two weeks ago, the legendary Bay Area producer dropped off his remix of montell2099 and 21 Savage’s collab, “Hunnid On The Drop,” a track that was a highlight in RL Grime’s banging Halloween VI mix. Yesterday, Mr. Carmack posted another huge tune, his and Vindata’s take on the fresh, new N.E.R.D and Rihanna track, “Lemon.”
I’m not sure what I’m more hyped for, the fact that N.E.R.D (aka Pharrell, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley) are releasing music again for the first time in seven years, or that Mr. Carmack and Vindata snapped on this remix. The track focuses heavily on boosted percussion, as it retains most of the original track’s energy. I would consider this more of an edit that an actual remix, but that doesn’t take away anything from it. It’s as if Mr. Carmack really loved the original, but just had to sprinkle a bit of his magic on top, with the help of Vindata. Give the Mr. Carmack and Vindata flip a listen right here.
