Kanye West - "Flashing Lights" (Mike Simonetti Mr. West's Lights Edit)
At an absolute loss for words over how amazing this Mike Simonetti edit of Kanye West's "Flashing Lights" sounds. The Italians Do It Better label boss basically leaves the skeleton of the song intact even as he removes the most prominent element - Mr. West's vocal track - in its entirety. The result is, as commenter Saks&Teip pointed out, "slo-mo house" consisting of the original song's oversimplified beat and orchestral strings, with some synth washes added in to put a nice sheen on the mix. So, it's Yeezy, minus Yeezy. Incredible.
