Kaytranada Remixes Chance The Rapper’s “All Night” & Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky”
A few months after Kaytranada’s release of his award winning album, 99.9%, the artist has shared what he has been working on in his spare time: two dope remixes, one of R&B singer Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky” and another a song off Chance The Rapper’s mixtape, Coloring Book. He reworked both “Cranes In The Sky” and “All Night” into full on dance music tracks, while managing to feature parts from the original tracks as well.
The remix of Solange‘s chart topping single “Cranes In The Sky” is a masterpiece. The reworked drums are more upbeat in the remix and the track gives the R&B single more of a dance style feel to it. But this doesn’t mean that the emotion of the original version was lost – Kaytranada retained the original soul of the track by including a number of the original layers like the piano during the chorus and the heavy ambiance in the background.
The remix of “Cranes In The Sky” was followed up shortly after with an “extended joint” of a song he produced for Chance The Rapper’s mixtape, Coloring Book. Kaytranada’s remix is one of the more successful tracks on Chance’s mixtape, titled “All Night”. “All Night” features vocalist Fort Knox on the chorus. Kaytranda was able to keep a lot of the sounds from the original version. Like his “Cranes In The Sky” remix, they appear during the chorus. The rest of the track has the same bouncy, dance music groove to it.
