Kavinsky ft. The Weeknd – “Odd Look (Remix)”

With The Weeknd’s Kiss Land on the way in August, the R&B singer has teamed up with another lover of mystery and moody backlit press shots, French producer Kavinsky, for a remix of ”Odd Look” from the latter’s 2013 debut album. As Do Android Dance points out, both A-Trak and Surkin have already remixed “Odd Look” (listen here and here) for a new EP, which will also include this vocal remix from The Weeknd.

The electro-house production is a far cry from the hazy soundscapes that we’re accustomed to hearing Tesfaye sing over, and although the production does seem a little too cluttered for him at times he manages to just about stay on top of the beat, with the results being an interesting mixture of styles.
