Mr. Carmack is no stranger to the industry, and last time we checked up on him, he managed to create an entirely new Soundcloud for a slew of unreleased tracks that had not seen the light of day up to that point. His faithful following and dedication to harder sounds and remixes have cemented him among hardcore fans in the electronic community that appreciate his eye to detail and his respect for the old-school.
As we all know, Kendrick Lamar’s brand-spanking-new album, DAMN., has been on repeat and has landed a special place in our daily playlists for about two weeks now. It’s also wise to note, that aside from facing critical acclaim, Kendrick’s re-entrance into the industry has been met with nothing short of acclaim. What can make this effort even better? Well, Mr. Carmack of course!
MR CARMACK – DNA (Remix)
Just a week ago, Aaron Carmack/Mr. Carmack dropped a trap-heavy remix that manages to retain the importance of Kendrick’s lyrics, but transforms it with R&B sounds mixed into the bridge that aren’t present in the original track. Mr. Carmack manages to transform “DNA,” into something that translates Kendrick’s frustrations to a dancefloor environment without sacrificing the integrity of the original. Although sometimes jarring, Mr. Carmack’s remix of “DNA” reflects a respect for old-school electronica, while combining two other genres to make the track more well-rounded.
“DNA” could be seen as a banger for this summer, and even more so with this remix, a banger at any house-party that needs a little life breathed into it. Through his appreciation for dark and aggressive sounds, Mr. Carmack’s “DNA” remix plays like a horror movie, with twists and turns that will get you pining for more. If you are looking for a response to one of the best rap albums of 2017, Mr. Carmack has your answer.
