Wedidit beatsmith Groundislava remixes Katy Perry's 'Wide Awake'

We’re pretty sure this is the first time a Katy Perry remix has appeared on FACT.

After more logical takes on Miguel’s ‘Adorn’ and Cruel Summer‘s ‘Clique’, Groundislava has set his sights on the bubblegum stylings of Katy Perry. On the brief remix, the Los Angeles producer sandwiches a chiptune-meets-footwork composition between the hook of one of Perry’s recent singles.

While Groundislava and his Wedidit compatriots are no stranger to R&B and hip-hop remixes, this one is definitely outside their usual sandbox. Still, whether it’s an ironic choice or an earnest one (we’re leaning towards the latter), the remix is a charming bit of pop re-contextualization. Stream it below.
