Robin Thicke would have been better off had Forever Kid just produced “Give It 2 U” in the first place.  Luckily, it looks like the duo were looking for just the project to keep them busy in the midst of a brutal Swedish winter.  Let’s be real– the original ”Give It 2 U” missed the mark.  Even the anticipated verse by my own personal Lord and savior, Kendrick Lamar, landed flat on top of the original mix’s tired, pre-blog-house-electro-sounding beat.  This remix is much more fun, and Kendrick’s verse is highlighted much better as well.  High kicks.  Dream come true.  #RefuseToGrowUp

Forever Kid are back at it again, and with each release they step it up a notch and continue to hit the mark.  Every new remix is a fresh blast of cold air to the face, boldly doing whatever they want to classics that most up and comers wouldn’t dare touch, and that’s really the idea here. This remix is no exception, an artful splash of their tuned up aesthetic perfectly courting the familiar sonic stage; here’s its their signature “dream come true” overflow of retro snyths on top of Ce Ce’s powerhouse pipes. Always over the top in just the right dose, I find myself hitting the loop for a listen or ten on whatever I find in my inbox from them.

Also, got more info this week on the creation of the Forever Kid helmet and their ongoing collaboration with street legend Annie Preece on the design, to finally be built by the mau5head-maker himself.

Forever Kid are out on the town, generally messing with Hollywood.  Check out who they mess with at the end.  Any vandalism of that place is pretty neat in my book.  Something tells me they’ll somehow receive a sternly worded letter signed by several lawyers for that one.  If you happen to be several lawyers who represent a ridiculously fraudulent cult, and would like me to pass a sternly worded letter on to Forever Kid, please email stevie@gottadancedirty.com, thanks!

Forever Kid Fridays comes a day early today, and they’re after my own heart.  In the years since the King of Pop has passed, we’ve seen plenty of hasty remixes leech their way up  the blogs every August 29, his birthday.  Today we have something different and special, a tasteful ode to the man and legend that was, and always will be.  Forever Kid‘s signature dream-come-true styled synths reimagine these iconic riffs, bust their way through with flying kicks, and send us head first into the end, for that face-melting Van Halen solo we all know so well.  They basically rocked out a 2013 pop anthem out of a 1983 pop anthem.  I’m on listen #4.  Rest in paradise, MJ.

Forever Kid are at it again.  This week’s Forever Kid Fridays features another big remix, this time of the dance classic Can’t Get You Out of My Head, by uberbabe Kylie Minogue.  Our first installment of the series saw Forever Kid’s Beegees remix quickly ascend the ranks of Hype Machine to #1, and I expect nothing less from this one.  Bold, layered synthwork accents Kylie’s ethereal and eternally sexy vocals in a hugely haunting way.  At first listen you’re transported to the crescendo of a mainstage set from a festival in a dreamy retro-future.  And there’s a killer solo at the end.  Stay tuned and #RefuseToGrowUp.
