This Synthwave Remix Of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” Is Lo-Fi ’80s Country-Trap Perfection

Think Lil Nas X, but in 'Stranger Things'.

Hey, have you ever heard that song “Old Town Road”?

The inescapable track has been remixed more times than we can count, with new versions coming from one-hit-wonder-slash-TV-dad Billy Ray Cyrus, K-Pop stars BTS, and internet-meme-turned-country-sensation Mason Ramsey to name a few. But none of the hundreds of remixers have reinterpreted the country-rap hit quite like this one.

YouTube artist Ace Waters stripped the original of its plucked guitar and 808-laden beat and drenched it in ’80s nostalgia with this synthwave cover. Crunchy drums, analog synths and a keytar solo await you. Listen above.
