Conor Alu & R3K – Fire Fly

Kid Cudi – Falling Star (R3K remix)

The other day I find myself aimlessly surfing the internet while ‘spying’ on the Hype Machine, when suddenly my attention is brought to a song that is playing in the background. I quickly find the tab and discover a new remix that I have to favorite and add to my playlist, it’s Kid Cudi’s Falling Star as remixed by R3K. It was a little more challenging to find out more information about R3K than I’d like to admit. R3K, or Riley Keating, hasn’t had a new track released in over a year and his SoundCloud account is empty. All that I can find on the kid is that he’s a Boulder, Colorado based DJ/Producer and that he’s collaborated with Conor Alu (a freestyle artist from the same area). There doesn’t seem to be too much activity coming out from these two young artists, perhaps they are focusing on school (or working on the next big project – one can hope).

I did want to share two songs from the collaboration of Conor Alu and R3k, these tracks are more than a year old and will work well with our Throwback Friday. Fire Fly is a great Electronic Hip Hop song that has a subtle euphoria built-in that gives this one such a chill ambiance. Another worthwhile track is, WTF, which reminds me a little of another local group, 3oh!3 (or at least what I assume their early attempts at music would sound like). These two need to reemerge onto the music scene and mount a long-awaited comeback!
