America’s favorite performer, Steve Aoki, cooked up a killer remix of Bonnie McKee’s radio hit, “American Girl,” that’ll bring you right back to the beach parties and bikinis of Summer 2013. Aoki teased us with a two second snippet of the track on his Vine back in August, but now we can hear the whole rendition on his SoundCloud. The Dim Mak founder turns this simple, bubbly pop-song upside down right from the beginning. Starting us off with some key electro-house baselines, fading McKee’s vocals into the beat then adding in some more abrasive synths, he takes the catchy melody and flips it into a club-worthy remix. If you’re not convinced right away, just wait for the drop. It’ll be sure to get you dancing- no, jumping- the first time you hear it.
