Psychic Sidekicks "Top of the World (Instrumental)"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
San Francisco duo Psychic Sidekicks recently tried its hand at remixing Trey Songz' "Top of the World" (artwork for that above), and although the version featuring the R&B crooner wasn't exactly up our alley, this instrumental version makes for quite an impressive effort. "Top of the World" is a heavy endeavor, with foot stomp-inducing drum patterns pushed by massive low end while a sinister arp drives the highs. Sure, the pair isn't forging new territory here, but Psychic Sidekicks has put together a fine piece of futuristic beat work, one that seems to have a direct relation between its increased volume and listeners' increased enjoyment.
