As far as kitschy trends in electronic music go, the wave of R&B and R&B-inspired tracks percolating through house and bass music lately has certainly spawned its share of cringe-worthy moments. That said, when Austin-based DJ and producer Dubbel Dutch (pictured above) is the one giving contemporary R&B the remix treatment, we’re pretty much happy to let this fad continue ad infinitum. This rework of last year’s “Lay It Down” from pop star Lloyd slams some bass-filled reggaeton behind the sensual crooning, releasing the restrained foreplay of the original into an all-out bump and grind. Look out for a new Dubbel Dutch EP, Hymn, which is set to drop soon on Mixpak, the Dre Skull-helmed label to which he recently signed. Ahead of that, Europeans can catch him in the flesh over the next week or so, as he’s currently on tour across the pond. The tour dates can be found after the jump. (via FADER)
