Electro, Mainstream Remix | Frank Ocean – Pyramids (Chi Duly Remix)

Posted by on September 4, 2012

One of my favorite remixers in the game, Chi Duly, hits us with his latest rework masterpiece. I’ve been on Chi’s bandwagon since I heard his versions of The Weeknd’s tunes. A good remixer is able to keep the structure of the original song, while still being able to add their own creative pillars to…supplement it. Channel Orange was one of my favorite albums of the year, and I know many people felt the same way. But I’m sure all those people will be behind me in thanking Chi for shortening this song to half it’s original length. This track will be featured on Mick Boogie and Stylecaster’s “Sounds From The Front Row Vol. 6,” so be on the lookout for that as well. Read Chi Duly’s thoughts below the SC player after you download this work of art.

“When I remix something I visualize a place the song needs to go. Naturally the place for this song would be a trendy night club filled with mummies and Egyptians in golden robes inside of a pyramid floating in the Red Sea. They would most likely be drinking wine, dancing and conversing about a general hatred for Brendan Fraiser. I mean I’d be defending him though. Sometimes people tend to forget about a cinematic achievement called Encino Man. Anyways pyramids are crazy.”

RnB | Frank Ocean – Pyramids

I don’t need a snappy intro or hook to draw you in with this song. The song is by Frank Ocean, and that’s all you need to know. Frank doesn’t fail to impress with this one, the first single off of his upcoming album, Pyramids, is a hit. Heads up, the song is 10 minutes long, and it gets a bit repetitive at some points, but damn, is Frank Ocean a talent, this song perfectly showcases his songwriting and vocal abilities. He seems to have cut his public affiliation with Odd Future to a minimum, which shows he’s taking his career as a singer seriously, even if he might not be having as much fun as Taco, Jasper, Tyler and the rest of the gang. After hearing Pyramids, I can’t wait to hear his debut album, Channel Orange coming soon.
