Remix: Kanye West – Bound 2 (The Rooftop Boys Remix)

Everyone’s favourite part of Bound 2 is Charlie Wilson‘s gorgeous hook, if you say it’s not then you’re lying. It also makes for excellent remix fodder; most famously Sigma‘s Nobody To Love reworked the clip into a four-minute-long dancefloor filler, which is great, but I would argue The Rooftop Boys attempt is far superior. It doesn’t use Wilson’s lyrics as a crutch, more so builds upon them, adding deep shattering bass lines and slick percussion for one blistering rework. Listen to this one with headphones on.
