Ghostly International’s electronic R&B duo DRAMA, delivers a funky remix of Brijean’s, the Oakland-based collaboration of Brijean Murphy and Doug Stuart, track “Hey Boy.” It’s the third reimagining of a single from Brijean’s label LP debut, Feelings and is taken from the forthcoming Feelings Remixes EP, out August 13th.
Listen – ‘Hey Boy’ (DRAMA Remix)
Chicago’s DRAMA underscore the disco shuffle of “Hey Boy,” lending a funkier dance structure complete with shakers and call and response shouts (“Hey! Hey Boy!”). Brijean considers the original a “psychedelic guide — the exploration of finding what feels good — through sorrow, anxiety, apathy.” DRAMA’s take doubles down on the good times.
“Working with Brijean on the Hey Boy remix has been one of our favorite collaborations. We wanted to give the record some more bounce and make it even more danceable. Brijean is a very talented artist, and we are excited we got to work on this.” — DRAMA
The Feelings Remixes EP extends the relaxed reverie of Feelings with contributions from Sam Gendel, Buscabulla, DRAMA, and Rick Wade. Brijean Murphy and Doug Stuart’s deep roots in jazz, pop, electronic and Latin spheres inform the music they make as Brijean, and these influences are reflected in the diverse group of remixers they tapped for this project.
“We love DRAMA! Brijean first met Via and Na’el on a tour with Poolside and was struck by their relentless depth, energy and presence performing night after night. Always bringing it and making space for dance. Stoked for their remix of our song ‘Hey Boy'” — Brijean
DRAMA’s groovy remix of ‘Hey Boy’ transpires after the duo’s first solo release “Don’t Hold Back,” which debuted as a World First on Zane Lowe’s Apple Radio show. The track also follows after their hit, “You’ve Done Enough” with one of dance music’s in-demand acts, Gorgon City, which has been streamed over 20M+, two EPs, Gallows in 2016 and Lies After Love in 2018, and their debut album Dance Without Me in January 2020.
