Gallant’s “Weight in Gold” is one of the biggest, most striking R&B singles of the year, and because of its relatively sparse instrumental it particularly lends itself to remixes. Ta-ku already tried his hand at one, and here we’ve got another from newcomer Justice Skonik.
Skolnik beefs up the drums, punctuating the track with 808 rolls and echoing claps. He also beautifully chops up Gallant’s falsetto on the outro, and finds the right aspects of the original track to accentuate.
Adding some trademark arpeggiated strings and oscillating synths makes the remix uniquely Skolnik’s, and it’s certainly another worthwhile addition a canon that includes flips of The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games” and 3LAU’s “How You Love Me.”
