6. Azealia Banks (Feat. Pharrell) – ATM Jam
This was supposed to be Azealia’s next huge single, and it bellyflopped in the middle of summer, dead on arrival. But where the original is flat, the remix is sharp – Kaytranada warps the opening drums and puts Azealia’s verse first instead of Pharrell’s hook. That hook, which sounds dull on the original, is absolutely fire on here. It’s a magical transformation.
I found this song while being lame and staying in on a Saturday night, watching Kaytranada on Boiler Room instead of going out like a normal human being. Now I’m glad that I was a loser that night.
