Dance to the distortion.

Katy Perry is busy teasing bite-sized clips of her upcoming record, but she hasn’t forgot about her lead single, “Chained To The Rhythm.”

Following a monstrous synthy remix by UK dance-pop producer Hot Chip comes a second equally enthralling revision by Lil Yachty on his dubiously titled “BoatRemix.”

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of remixes that don’t feature new vocals from the artist, so I’ll do my best to stay upbeat. As far as Katy’s contribution goes, her recording remains unchanged, but the cooled production further highlights Perry’s socially-charged message. For Yachty’s part, the rapper throws in a couple of verses about making it big: “I went from reading magazines to being on the cover.” The hollow, synthy background is actually a highlight for the remix. See? Upbeat :]
