Kyle Watson breathes new life into the iconic 1975 hit “Low Rider” with a funky fresh remix as he takes his signature house sound to new heights.
For the better part of a decade, with each passing release, South African phenom Kyle Watson continues to soar to new sonic heights. From his career-defining classics such as “I Got You,” “Magic Carpet,” and “Moments,” to dancefloor-destroying remixes like “Gas Pedal,” he continues to ignite a fire in our shoes that refuses to go out. As the year ends, one of his most sought-after IDs finally sees the light of day, a fresh take on the iconic 1975 anthem, “Low Rider,” by WAR.
Like many great producers, Kyle Watson has tapped into the natural evolution of his sound with his latest remix that’s out now on No Context. He delivers a more simplistic take, leaving the classic horns and nostalgic vocal directly in the spotlight while still offering bouncy basslines and sensationally sharp hi-hats to bring a modern twist to the track. It’s a refreshing take that continues to carry his signature danceability while paying homage to the instantly recognizable grooves WAR laid down almost 50 years ago.
With no end in sight to Watson’s production prowess, “Low Rider” highlights his adaptability amongst an ever-changing tide of house music greatness, and he’s excelled once again at letting the music speak for itself. And what better way to celebrate the release than by curating a playlist of tunes that will help you find your groove while driving around? He’s curated tracks from Cassius, Cut Snake, Duke Dumont, Kasabian, The Prodigy, Daft Punk, and more for your next road trip. Check it out!
