MUSIC JEWEL: Melo- X Performance Of "Drunk In Love Remix"
DUHHH! Of course Kendrick's "Swimming Pools" and "Drunk In Love" would make for a match made in heaven!
After scavenging the internet streets following Jayonce's HBO 'On The Run' special I found magic.
In case you're like me and still not tired of Beysus or her super lusty number one hit, here, I bring to you dope ass remix performed by Melo-X live in the basement of the Sean Kelly Gallery in NYC. Hailing from my native hood of Flatbush, Brooklyn, Melo is also responsible for some of the sound and music production on Jay & Bey's On The Run tour.
He recently spoke to Billboard about working with the mutant couple, telling the mag:
“I remixed her project [Beyoncé], and did a live beat video for it, which was filmed at the [NYC] Sean Kelly Gallery,” he tells Billboard. “She specifically saw the [live performance video of] 'Drunk in Lust,' a remix to 'Drunk in Love,' and wanted to involve me in what they were working on for the tour.”
“They already had the story and the outline for the tour. The whole story is like you’re watching a film and it’s narrated by the music that they created together and separately,” he explained. “They had certain scenes throughout the tour, and they'd want a certain vibe for [each] scene. We’d sit and talk about that the sounds. Then I’d go and create something. It was a mix of my ideas, with Beyoncé and Jay Z. I’d try to compliment them. I’d try to find a meeting point of what I do and what they wanted."
Melo-X has a full EP of remixed Yoncé tracks. You can download it here and peep the amazing performance of the remix above.
