Hear Blood Diamonds’ Slinky Remix of Charli XCX’s ‘What I Like …

Charli XCX has been trying her hand at other artists songs since packing last month s True Romance1 with her own potential hits. You know, covering2 a boy-band classic by the Backstreet Boys, reworking3 a 2012 space-disco nugget by Norwegian producer Hans-Peter Lindstr m the usual. Now she has yielded True Romance s honeymooning What I Like 4 over to the Grimes- and Das Racist-collaborating producer known as Blood Diamonds.

Los Angeles-based Mike Tucker warps some vocals and soaks the original in candy-colored murk that s probably perfect for sitting on your bedroom floor still smoking. He s fresh off a like-minded remix of Kendrick Lamar s Bitch, Don t Kill My Vibe.5 Charli, when not letting Danny Brown add a verse to this song6, has also been acting out rave-reviving Take My Hand in video form7 and collaborating with tourmates Marina & the Diamonds8. Oh, and yup, there s plenty here to like.
