While I may have attended high school with Riley Keating, known as R3K in the music world, I promise you I’m not being biased when I say that he is honestly one of the most promising young producers I’ve seen in a while. From the very beginning of his career in producing music, R3K has shown an impressive knack for perfectly bridging the gap between genres by combining tracks by artists you wouldn’t normally expect to complement each other. For example, his track “Falling Star (R3K Remix) -” an epic combination of Kid Cudi and Florence + The Machine – hit #1 on the Hype Machine charts and has had over 5 million views on YouTube.

Of course, R3K’s skills aren’t confined to just making remixes. He also partners up with his close friend and insanely talented rapper/songwriter, Conor Alu. Together, the two have created some truly sick tracks that have a genre all their own – with influences ranging all across the spectrum from EDM to hip hop and even to punk rock. Most recently, the dynamic duo opened up for SkrillexGTA, Nadastrom, and Alesia in Boulder, Colorado, and I don’t know about you but that’s a pretty epic testament to their skills.

Now, with R3K’s background out of the way, I introduce to you the newest R3K gem, a remix of “Runaway (U & I)” by Galantis. Initially produced as a submission for a remix competition, this track is an exceptional example of chillstep/mellow trap and of course, good vibes.

What’s even better than epic music? Artists who make their tracks available to download FO’ FREE. So go on, peep this chill remix and download it directly from SoundCloud so you bump it whenever and wherever!
