The Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down” (Gramatik Remix)

Gramatik remixes The Beatles classic “Don’t Let Me Down” and kills it. The original track was released as the B-side of Get Back in 1969, both songs were recorded the same day. It was going to be on the Let It Be album, but when the tapes from the sessions were turned over to Phil Spector to produce, he removed the song off the album. Great song by The Beatles with a chill yet still epic remix done by Gramatik, this track reminds me of the Pretty Lights remix of Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like an Eagle” due to the funky/ hip hop sound both producers brought to the classic rock anthems. Listen to The Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down” (Gramatik Remix) below now, also check out what he had to say about the song.

So, back in 2006 when I was still rapping(in Slovene), I sampled ”Don’t Let Me Down” by The Beatles and later on recorded lyrics over it. The beat was very simple, adapted for rap vocals so I decided to revisit it, remove my raps and add a bunch of other live instruments, synths and samples to it, so you guys can enjoy it in instrumental form without it being boring. It’s a downtempo hip-hop flavored banger that continues the evolution of collage sampling combined with live instrumentation and synthesis. Hope you guys like it. –Gramatik
