I did an ode to “Swimming Pools” remixes about two months ago on What’s Good With It (peep that here), and questioned then how many more of these remixes of Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools” we really needed. Well…apparently a huge amount more, judging from how many have come out since then. And like all remixes, there have been stellar, not so stellar and just god-awful versions. Every so often there is that one remix that gives one faith that maybe, just maybe, everyone should keep remixing “Swimming Pools” and this is that remix.
Blood Diamonds is a great dude, and WGWI has been a fan for a minute, and he has a great way of transforming the original track into something completely different while still being able to make sure that the purists of the original will enjoy his rendition. Blood Diamonds’ remix of “Swimming Pools” is dark, eerie and memorable. Check it out below:
