Sofi Tukker‘s “Purple Hat” is one of hottest vocal commodities on the market, and Dillon Francis wanted to play. Not sparing the catchy “p” sounds, he bounces a springy bass along with some snaps and lets those vocals shine because they deserve it. Then a bed of lush chords slowly lift from underneath, dropping listeners heads through an similar badass, gritty, warehouse bass.
This year, Francis released a grip of remixes to his Magic Is Real project, with works from Black Car, Beauty Brain, Shndō, King Arthur, and Kevin Aleksander.
The Sofi Tukker duo are headlining festivals for a reason, with breakout hit after breakout hit, starting back in 2015 with the Grammy-nominated “Drinkee,” which started a slew of jungle-pop with Brazilian sounds and playful Portuguese tones.
