- Artist: AudioDax
- Track: Thoughts (Crystal Castles Remix)
- Producer: Temble (of AudioDax)
- Album: Vampire Castles (Our Take) Mixtape
After hearing emcee-producer duo AudioDax bring us some of the most musically adventurous yet pop-appealing tracks to hit the Booth in a minute, I couldn't help but wonder what artists they listened to on the regular. If you, too, have been hankering for a peek into rapper Krypton Flo and singer/beatsmith Temble's record collection, you're in luck – the Midwesterners' next project will find them remaking a number of their personal faves. On leak numero uno, Thoughts, AudioDax take inspiration from experimental electronic duo Crystal Castles, flipping the Toronto natives' dark, brooding Empathy into a more upbeat, club-ready concoction. Over Temble's chopped-up take on the original beat, Krypton spits some of the most complexly braggadocious bars we've heard from him to date: “See me on my grizzy, I'm beastin' kind of grizzly(,) bear/bare with me like I'm skinny-dippin' down in the Mississippi.” Fans can hear more flipped versions of the records nearest and dearest to AudioDax' hearts on their Vampire Castles: Our Take mixtape, which has yet to receive a solid release date.
