This Electronic Remix of Adekunle Gold's 'Ire' Will Jump Start Your Weekend

Pheelz takes the Nigerian artist's hit song into EDM territory.

Adekunle Gold's sophomore album, About 30, which dropped last year featured several standout tracks, one of which was the soulful and tranquil "Ire."

That single is now getting turned on its head and given a wealthy dose of beats courtesy of this new remix from fellow Nigerian producer Pheelz.

Pheelz bypasses the acoustic feel of the original for an all-out dance jam packed full of pitched-up vocals and bouncing beat work. The remix is paired with a new music video that follows a young kid dancing around the Venice Beach boardwalk and its skateparks.

Adekunle Gold's About 30, which is available now, includes features from Seun Kuti, Flavour, Dyo, LCGC and British-Nigerian soul singer Jacob Banks, who appears on an early remix of the popular lead single "Ire."
