The Weeknd’s Abel Tesfaye had a banner year, dropping a trilogy of hyper-acclaimed mixtapes (House of Balloons, Thursday, and brand-newbie Echoes of Silence) and dropping a few buttery-smooth verses of his own on two of the best tracks on Drake’s Take Care. Now he’s getting the remix treatment himself, in incredibly thorough fashion thanks to the producer Slim K, who specializes in chopped-and-screwed, slowed-down reinventions of full records. Because one remix just wasn’t enough, Mr. K stretched out the tracks on all three mixtapes into dizzy, languid slow-burners that sound like walking in slow motion on an impossibly humid day. We like his take on “D.D.,” Tesfaye’s ridiculously great Michael Jackson cover from Echoes of Silence. Check it out below, and download the remixtapes.
