Idris Elba has the moves on and off the screen. He makes your heart melt in famous roles on The Wire, Luther, The Dark Tower, and more, but off camera, he just wants to make you boogie-oogie-oogie.
He’s a real proper house DJ by the name of Driis, whose collaborated a lot with U.K. dance floor icon Fatboy Slim. But today, it’s all about his double remix package for London DJ and producer SHY FX’s “Chocolate,” featuring Ghetts, Breakage, and Roses Gabor. The original is dark and grimy, bass-heavy with a wonky beat. Elba takes two turns with the experimental sound.
The first “7 Wallace” remix is a house heavy rhythm made with a bumpin’ disco in mind. The second “Sugar Zaddy” mix leaves more of the original wonkiness in tact but boosts the beat with four-on-the-floor and quirky additives.
Both Driis’ “Chocolate” remixes are out now via Party on the Moon. Gorge yourself without the guilt of calories below.
