The last time I covered Brooklyn-based producer AtillA, real name Atilla Ural, it was for his remix of FKA twigs' "Video Girl" as part of the duo Hercules Handsome. Adding muscle to what was already a strong track, they lead it away from R&B and into the electronic music world.
This time AtillA has taken on another R&B weirdo, Spooky Black, with similarly impressive results. He takes the sleepy vibe of the du-rag-adorned singer's hit "Without You," and trades it in for a more upbeat trap sound. Starting out with smoldering ambience and a wonky rhythm, the track eventually explodes into all-out decadence. Once again, AtillA has proven his ability to take a song and reveal its evil twin. You can download the remix through his Facebook page.
