Que – YN ft. Migos (falcxne Remix) [Audio]

Montreal, QC – Mississauga-born, Montreal-based falcxne just hit us with a remix he did to Que and Migos’ “YN.” Holy damn. I am so glad falcxne is delivering more music. This kid is a beast.

I’ve only heard falcxne as a rapper. But lately he’s been diving into the production side of things. So he decided to do a really zonked-out remix of “YN.” Supposedly, it sounds like “polka meets the hood.” I feel that. Actually, what falcxne did on the main hook sounds a bit like a carnival or a circus. Either way, it’s a fun take on trap. I feel like cats try to be really hard when they listen to a song like “YN.” And some of the cats I see turning up to “YN” look ridiculous. But falcxne lessens the hard edge of the song and puts his own spin on the trap game. Check it out.

And in case you’re wondering, here’s the backstory on why I’m such a huge falcxne fan: Way back in February, some rap cat out of Montreal named falxcne sent me an audio release for a track titled “Cereal.” This track was one of the coolest things I heard last year. The dude took a Dilla beat, and made an ultimate ode to his royal Dilla flyness.

The song’s lyrics were all references to everything J Dilla and Slum Village. And it was brilliant. The song came to me right around Dilla Day, and right when I was rehashing my love for the great Dilla. So it was perfect timing. This dude knows how to make some gnarly wordplays, so I’m stoked to see what he has in-store for us on the production side of things.
