Toy Light remixes Schoolboy Q's “Yay Yay”

Blake Gillespie

Toy Light

Los Angeles' Walker Asby, pka Toy Light, continues to rise in profile since the release of last year's Sign Of Life EP, which we praised for its “levels of deep introspection and colorfully grey mania” that “when they are all peppered with crisp hi-hats and flailing denouements, feels original and determinate.” Toy Light recently contributed two productions to Open Mike Eagle's highly-anticipated Dark Comedy album, and he's continuing the foray into rap with a remix to Schoolboy Q's “Yay Yay”.

On the “Yay Yay” remix Toy Light brightens the original Boi-1da production with chiptune glitches that lift Schoolboy Q's autobiography of drug dealing into a champagne room celebration of bubbles in crystal stilts. Toy Lights' embellishments remove Schoolboy from the block and place him outside himself to reflect with a “we made it” mentality.

For more recent output by Toy Light, head to his Bandcamp to stream the Afterlife EP.
