Moss of Aura, or Future Islands' Gerrit Welmers, adds a funky bassline and a signature new wave lead to Danny Brown's “Grown Up”. Welmers' beat is loud, but unlike a lot of rap remixes, it doesn't overpower the rhymes. “Grown Up” is about being young through a tough time, and is almost like a short musical memoir–just further proof that there is more to Danny Brown than adderall and crazy haircuts. Moss of Aura's tracks often carry a certain vintage aura, which seems to go perfectly with a song about childhood–the remix might bring up some nostalgia to what Danny was listening to 20 years ago.
