Doc McKinney, one half of The Weeknd’s producer team and Toronto resident has remixed British singer YADi’s latest single “Guillotine.
The Canadian born, US raised producer, writer and remixer enjoyed a sensational 2011 after his heavy dark work with The Weeknd, Drake and Florence + The Machine established him as one of the most forward thinking pop producers out there.
A month ago I wrote about YADi's first music video for the single "Guillotine"… I was drawn to the violent imagery and emotion in her songs along with the swedish pop influences. Its a perfect compliment to McKinney’s fuzzy pulsating synths and pounding minimalist drums and highlights YADi’s ethereal tribal quality — Extracting every last ounce of stark emotion from the singers voice. The track is premiering on FACT and be available as a free download.
