We first came across New Jersey producer Christos Diamantidis (Xristo) after coming across his captivating remix of Daft Punk’s classic “Something About Us.” Now months later, he reveals his rework of the chart-topping Red Hot Chili Peppers song “Californication,” which we’ve heard countless remixes of in the past. However, Xristo’s mix is in a class of its own. The bold rolling bassline and quiet sections make this sound like something Above & Beyond would play in their radio show. Luckily, the vocals (that we’ve all heard so many times) are used sparingly throughout the track, instead choosing to use well-planned chord progressions and melodies to highlight the real emotion behind the production.
