Idris Elba is many things; award-winning actor, extremely dapper gentleman and all around badass to name but a few (but we could go on). But what many might not realize is that Elba is also a DJ – and not a shabby one at that. Need proof? Take a listen to his remix of Shy FX’s “Chocolate,” making its world premiere below.
Elba, who produced under the moniker Driis, delved into two different directions for his remix of the track, ultimately producing two. One version leans into the world of house with an emphasis on the piano line, the other into a more bass-driven route. Both are equally sure to get your butt moving.
Take a listen to the original version of “Chocolate” below.
