Jared Lucas, better known as Kap Slap, is having a busy year. He's spent the summer destroying eager festival crowds with his versatile combination of mash-ups, remixes, and original tracks. He's still on the road, playing a few solo shows before joining TIMEFLIES for a few months in October and November.
Yesterday, Lucas dropped his "festival edit" of Nico & Vinz's smash-hit "Am I Wrong," describing his reinvention as a "housey spin". This is a humble description, as the remix is absolutely colossal, with some epic surprises thrown in left and right, like the bass-heavy breakdown instigated by the question "Do you fuck as well as you dance?" A house remix of a pop song can often be an excuse for a lazy producer to benefit from someone else's songwriting. Here, however, Kap Slap is undeniably running the show, leaving only the original vocals to hang on tight to a roller coaster of a tune that loops and spins through 6 glorious minutes. Kap Slap is coming to your town, all the convincing you need is right here.
