This remix of Vampire Weekend’s “Step” features three very different rappers spitting verses over an original Vampire Weekend beat. The instrumental morphing electronic elements, with piano and string instruments makes for an excellent backdrop. All three emcees rap about love, the “one that got away”, and growing up and take a much more different approach to lost love than Vampire Weekend does in the original “Step”.
With Vampire Weekend’s “Modern Vampires of the City” being one of the best albums of 2013, and already a new remix released via their twitter account in 2014. It seems safe to say Vampire Weekend has high hopes for 2014. This remix is incredible.
