The troupe’s reinterpretation drags the song down into the chilly depths of the club, providing some drippy beats, trap-lite hi-hats and pounding drum loops. (Actually, it’s a little reminiscent of the “Fancy” beat!) Charli’s vocals also get sent through the ringer on the remix; her rowdy chants are now chopped and screwed into demonically distorted vocals, stuttering yelps and moans. It’s a much darker side of “Boom Clap” — but no less fantastic.
