Cœur de Pirate – Wicked Games (Huglife Remix)

The producer formerly known as DJ Slink has literally slinked away from that name after enduring fierce competition from the other slinks of the trap world, redubbing himself as Huglife, a play of off 2pac’s infamous “Thug Life” theme. No matter, though, because he still manages to crank out quality trap tunes, the latest dropping late last night as a thank you to his fans for putting up with the name change and the ordeal that went with it. This one’s a remix of French female vocalist Cœur de Pirate’s cover of R&B/soul singer The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games”. The sensual vocals pair well with Huglife/Slink’s trap underpinnings and  make for one of those low-key, spacious trap tunes I love so much (for more, check out his remix of La Roux) . Free download over on Huglife’s Facebook page… If you give him a like, you’ll get his entire collection for free.

As a bonus, Huglife remixed one of the most recongizable tracks from our favorite Dirtybird Claude VonStroke, giving “Who’s Afraid of Detroit” a subtle but nice trap rework.
