Featured Song: Lorde – Green Light (Montell2099 & SACHI Remix).
From making beats on a version of FL studio installed on his computer by his grandparents – with whom he was living at the time in Te Rereatukahia Pa in KatiKati, New Zealand – to now dropping an official Lorde remix, Montell Pinny, a.k.a. Montell2099 has come a long way.
The Red Bull documentary showcasing his musical roots and journey thus far paints a prototypical picture of unlikely success in the Internet age of electronica.
He’s linked up with the extremely promising Kiwi duo SACHI – who have worked with a host of other exciting artists as of late, including the likes of Naji & Swindail, and courtship – for this absolute classic of a high octane remix here, preserving the original’s melodic elements and adding some killer bounce.
Be sure to check out more from both Montell2099 and SACHI – they are among the exciting wave of talent coming out of New Zealand, and both have very bright futures.
