UK dubstep/grime mastermind Joker takes his countrymen Gorillaz’ October single “Doncamatic (All Played Out)” for a haunting, spacey spin in this remix, going for physical release on November 22. Joker might switch up the original’s bright organ and foot-tapping drum machine in favor of dizzying cymbal and synth that sounds backwards and underwater, but he wisely keeps the buttery-smooth, made-for-R&B vocal stylings of English chanteur Daley in the foreground. It’s not a total overhaul of the original – the unadulterated vocals keep the remix tied to its predecessor – but Joker has successfully inducted Gorillaz’ synth-pop jam into his own genre.
