The “Head Games” remix by Cali’s Gypsy Mamba, and featuring fellow Los Angelean singer Audris, is a hard-hitting and beat-centric, cosmic reworking with bass-heavy production and transformed hypnotic, deep vocals.
Lost Midas says of the original track, which premiered on Thump: “The lyrics reflect a kind of internal pep talk . . . [t]here’s a lot of extraneous noise in Los Angeles. People have alternative motives. Depth of personality is hard to find… I suppose I was having a hard time remaining true to myself. To avoid getting sucked in to a state of emotional darkness, I kept having to tell myself ‘don’t waste your time, chasing a lie.’”
