Los Angeles has two baby-faces on the loose running around town and making mad club edits. Akira Akira and Hikeii collaborate on the regular and both have recently recorded mixes featured on Diplo & Friends BBC (Radio 1Xtra) where Hikeii (pronounced’high~key’) said we should wish him a happy 20th Birthday. The two got tapped for one of only two official remixes of the pop dancehall chune and chose to give  “Miss You” by Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer and Tory Lanez the Jersey Club treatment.

A cute, bonus side story to the original track –  is that the melody and some of the lyrics were originally penned and performed by Palmistry off Mixpak who was rolled into the re-write process of the song. Reddit threads report Cashmere Cat plays clips of the original out on tour. It’s a good look and the right way to do things, we think.

Check out the boys cute and bouncy rework. It’s available here on Spotify. Add it to your Get Hype playlist. Released on Mad Love/Interscope.
