Emerging from one of the coldest cities in the US comes a fiery new talent: Boston-based production duo Stop Thief. They recently wowed us with their remix of Cut Snake’s single “Echo”, and their latest release has officially landed them on our repeat offenders list.
In case you’re not familiar, “Gecko (Overdrive)” is the Becky Hill-assisted vocal mix of Oliver Heldens‘ single “Gecko”, and it’s a goddamn modern classic. It takes some guts to remix something of this magnitude, but Stop Thief pull it off like seasoned vets — swapping the heavy house vibes of the original with a heaping dose of trap percussion, expertly chopped vocals, and jolts of uplifting electronic bliss. Talk about a power move… these guys took a classic, flipped it on its head, and made it their own in the process.
