Premiere: Clicks & Whistles remix Blood Diamonds’ ‘Barcode’

The Charlotte duo rework the moody, scattershot original.

Blood Diamonds’ ‘Barcode’ pairs Harlem rapper Dominic Lord with a handful of elements (trap-inflected percussion, dubstep wobble, electro-pop synth work) that are more divergent on paper than on record.

On their remix of the song, Clicks & Whistles opt for a glitchy, breakbeat-fueled sound that is a bit more mellow than the original. Stream the song below; the Barcode EP is out now on Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint and also features remixes by DJ Q and Figure.
