Pulled from Scion CD Sampler Volume 22: Fool’s Gold Remixed, it’s time to re-familiarize yourself with Jori Hulkkonen’s remix of Kid Cudi’s hit “Day N Nite.” In 2008, Scion AV teamed with the Fool’s Gold—the Brooklyn-based label that specializes in finding the commonality between dance music and hip-hop—for a 8-track compilation of all new remixes of some of their singles. While the Crookers’ remix of “Day N Nite” may be more famous, don’t sleep on this take from Jori Hulkkonen. The Finnish producer with ties to the house scenes of France and Canada, offers a groovier, nearly tropical, take on Kid Cudi’s famously spaced out perspective. Still smooth after all these years.
