Until now, Portland producer Chi Duly was most internet famous for his Coldplay versus Drake mashup album October’s Very Cold.
Now he topped himself with turning some highlights of The Weeknd’s epic 2011 discography into club bangers. Words from the Chi Duly himself:
“Balloons of Haus is house music for the “I’m not really into techno” folks. It’s uptempo but more to the point (free of those minute long intros/breakdowns of arbitrary ambience). The concept was born of my interest in bringing The Weeknd’s vibe to a DJ set. He’s talking about what every other artist you hear in the club is talking about except he’s artistic, emotionally believable. The Weeknd’s subject matter is already club friendly. The pace however was only bedroom friendly. My project still retains that laid back, mellow uptempo R&B vibe but picks up on a harder electro vibe with the Dirty Diana remix. It’s all around a very diverse range of house music genres.”
Chi got some support from The Weeknd yesterday on Twitter:
