Trap lord RL Grime dropped a remix for The Weeknd's "The Hills" this week, delivering a high energy rework of the pop song. It's another remix that proves The Weeknd's ability to be seemlessly integrated into EDM, despite being an artist that generally works outside the genre.

RL Grime brings up the pace for his remix, contrasting the slow burning grooves of the original with frantic sounding sped up vocals from The Weeknd. The new remix opens with stripped down soundscapes and vocals before the percussion begins to pound away, quickly leading into dramatic drops with emotive synth chords and a frenzy of driving drum samples.
