At this point, it's safe to say your great aunt Agatha has seen Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" video on YouTube. But that's not the cut that caught Unlike Pluto's attention. Finding inspiration in the inspirational anthem "Can't Hold Us," Armond Arabshahi culls the emotional power of Macklemore's verses and the soaring, totally singable choruses, and drops them into a whirlwind of chugging bass and driving drums.
There's an intensity and a frenzy about this dubstep remix, but it never goes overboard, and it's hardly unfriendly to the ears. Rather, it's totally reasonable to expect to hear this as a college party or bumping from the car at the red light next to you. It's got a weight and a production value that's got us excited to hear from this Atlanta-based producer. Keep your eyes on the skies for Unlike Pluto. Enjoy the free download.
