Vampire Weekend have brought in rappers Danny Brown, Heems, and Despot for a "Wintertime Remix" of "Step" off their 2013 album Modern Vampires Of The City. The download is available through the tweet above, or clicking here: http://t.co/0K3nzouzCV
The song was a highlight from the album, with an exceptional lyric video you can watch here on Zumic. The remix treatment here is pretty cool, with Danny Brown taking the lead in a series of storytelling about life and girls. Lyrically, there's nothing earth shattering, but it's a damn good hip-hop remix of the quirky chamber pop song. Heems (aka Himanshu Kumar Suri) is best known as a member of defunct group Das Racist and fellow Queens rapper Despot is a co-owner of Santos Party House in New York City.
