Tyler, The Creator-French (Toro y Moi Remix)

Undoubtedly the man of the moment in hip-hop, Tyler’s track French was originally featured on his 2009 debut solo album Bastards. With his sharp rise to prominence, many remixes are beginning to emerge and this one twists the industrial, gritty production of the original into a more electronic style.

It’s a pretty solid remix, with the somewhat lighter production being far less ominous than the original, and hence will probably make for easier listening to those unconvinced or unaccustomed to Tyler/Odd Future’s beat selections. The original production also complimented the ‘shock factor’ of the lyrics with its blunted tones, whereas this remix downplays that aspect and instead makes it into one where the lyrics are projected slightly differently. I’m not sure I prefer it to the original, but it’s certainly more accessible to the wider audience, and worth checking out either way. Click here for Yonkers.
