Club Queen: Hayley Kiyoko’s “I Wish” Gets A Robotaki Remix
Hayley Kiyoko kicked off her sophomore era in July with an addictive synth-pop anthem called “I Wish.” The track now gets an electro-house overhaul courtesy of Canadian producer Robotaki. He distorts the vocal and switches up the BPM, creating a whole new song. “I’m so excited to have had the chance to work with Robotaki on this remix,” the “Curious” hitmaker says. “It’s especially meaningful when I’m able to collaborate with other Asian American artists/producers and amplify our collective voice in pop music.”
The DJ is similarly upbeat about the collaboration. “I feel super lucky that Hayley’s team reached out right at the time they did,” Robotaki reveals. “I’ve been on the road a lot this summer, and have been focusing a lot of my original works, however this track triggered excitement immediately and the mix came together faster than ever. Her vocals and a number of the sounds in the original track sparked something, and I’m super happy with how it came together in the end!” Listen to his handiwork below.
