Disco house’s rising superstars Solidisco have remixed Kanye West‘s much-hyped “Bound 2” into a glitzy and funky masterpiece. Rather than focusing on Kanye‘s “empowering” lyrics, Solidisco‘s edit of this tune highlights the amazingly soulful vocals of Charlie Wilson. Now, this Buffalo-native duo is already known for blending the shimmering synths and brassy horns of classic disco music with the thumping basslines of modern house music. However this time around, they have taken their talents to a whole new level, creating an edit that provides a well-needed breath of fresh air to its initial sound. With talk of the original’s unusual music video (and the James Franco/Seth Rogen remake), “Bound 2” was in need of some forward-thinking production to make it a relevant topic again. Solidisco‘s creative efforts have made this tune into a whole new piece of music, opening its accessibility to rap lovers and electronic music fans alike. With the track’s build leading to an explosion of its chorus with a danceable beat, Charlie (last name) Wilson’s soul-filled vocals provide the perfect framework for an earworm of a remix. Show these talented producers some love and be sure to download this track if you haven’t already – it’s free!
