Since I’m not Catholic, I’ve only attended a couple of masses in my life. That said, I’m pretty sure church hymns aren’t as fun as these hymns with lo-fi remixes.
On May 4 and 9, separate users uploaded lo-fi remixes of classic Catholic hymns. The first one to pop up on YouTube was a remix of “Anima Christi.” The video features the chill track with a picture of a girl in deep prayer from “Wolf Children” (a.k.a. Chillcow’s study girl). The second one to drop was “Kordero ng Diyos,” which slaps a bit harder than “Anima Christi” with its triple tempo beat.
Is it sacrilegious? Probably. Will these tracks make me go down at church? Oh yeah.
It’s sending us Sunday Mass x Transit Records vibes (in a good way). If masses had beats like these, I might be tempted to drop by. Seeing a priest sporting Carhartt and some Comme des Garçons x Nike is a plus.
