Dan Black feat. Kid Cudi - Symphonies Remix

United States x United Kingdom.

This is one of those tracks that sounds all-too familiar... but in a good way. Orchestral choir, film-score-worthy strings and then, Rihanna drums? The drums we're talking about here come from the hit song, Umbrella, which coincidentally, also sound like a certain drum loop found in GarageBand... Hmm. In any case, this track is so good it doesn't really matter.

For 3:43, we're sent into this slow-dancey jam hosted by Kid Cudi and Dan Black, fantastic! Cudi's undeniable aural charm is present throughout the entire track and Dan Black's panache for melodic synchronization is off the hook! On the plus side, there is an equal trade-off of vocal duties between Black and Cudi.

Check out the preview and then download.
