Childish Gambino “Crawl (Christian Rich Re-Work)”

“Crawl” has proved to be my favorite track off Childish Gambino‘s last album, Because The Internet. In fact, I still have it in my rotation. The beat and sample carries it for repeat listens, with Gambino’s memorable verses doing the trick in a different way too. To add some freshness to the fan-fave, the producers of the original — Christian Rich — re-worked “Crawl”, chopping up some of the vocals and adding layers and blends throughout this new version below.

Since I’m such a fan of the original, I had a feeling there’s no way I would dislike this. That said, I do enjoy the re-work with the build up into the second verse and the isolated violins being my two favorite new parts. I think this rendition of “Crawl” would translate well live too, so hopefully Gambino and his band can incorporate this as well.
