Frank Ocean, 'Pyramids' Chi Duly Remix: R&B Singer's Song Gets Uptempo Remix (EXCLUSIVE)

Posted: Updated:

We first introduced you to Chi Duly when he took three Calvin Harris songs and dropped Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" vocals over them (much to the delight of downtown New York DJs).

Now the man behind "October's Very Cold" (his Drake x Coldplay project) has a new song he'd like to share. Debuting exclusively on HuffPost Entertainment, Chi Duly's remix of Frank Ocean's "Pyramids" takes the diverse bedroom-to-strip-club-to-bedroom song and adds some dashes of La Bouche-style piano work and happy hand claps for a dance-ready edit that retains some of Ocean's ever-present melancholy.

Here's Duly's explanation:

"When I remix something, I visualize a place the song needs to go. Naturally the place for this song would be a trendy night club filled with mummies and Egyptians in golden robes inside of a pyramid floating in the Red Sea. They would most likely be drinking wine, dancing and conversing about a general hatred for Brendan Fraiser. I mean I'd be defending him though. Sometimes people tend to forget about a cinematic achievement called 'Encino Man.' Anyways pyramids are crazy."

Take a listen to the remix (and the original, off Ocean's widely lauded channel ORANGE) below and let us know what you think in the comments. Bonus: The remix is featured on Mick Boogie and Stylecaster's Fashion Week Mix, "Sounds From the Front Row 6," out Thursday. But until then, you can grab it as a free download here.
