length: 3:00

While everyone was debating whether Kendrick Lamar's last album, 'To Pimp A Butterfly,' is a classic or not, DMND City was scheming up a remix to one of the singles from his album before. The new duo, Thomas Sagstad and Jae Lyons, took the hypnotic track, "Swimming Pools," and made it more of a tribal warrior anthem. They added some heavy war drums, a looming synth, and a lot of darkness. Whereas the original was something to unwind to, this remix has a ton of anxiety and suspense mixed in--but in all the right proportions.
