Miami’s Patrick Cybulski—better known by his stage name, k?d—has been touring the globe in 2019, with stops in Germany, China, Spain, and more. While showcasing live talent is important, a strict tour schedule can cause a slight halt on the new music front. However, k?d wanted to give fans something special to finish out the year, and what better way to do so than alluding to his humble beginnings as a sharp remixer?
Three years ago, k?d was dropping SoundCloud remixes of Hayley Kiyoko, GTA, and more, leading to a euphoric, synth-heavy take on Daft Punk‘s beloved “Doin It Right” from their album Random Access Memories. Racking up over three million streams to date, the iconic remix is credited for jump-starting his career, ultimately leading to a “V2” to celebrate his growth.

k?d’s “V2” remix has been a staple in his live sets as of late, so fans must be relieved to see it finally come to light, as the young producer puts a groovier, funk-based take on this one, more in sync with Daft Punk’s original work. However, each climax is a new treat, with some chillwave electronics on the first break and deep craziness on the second.
