This Weeknd x ‘Stranger Things’ mashup is guaranteed to turn your world upside down

If there was one TV show that captured the public’s attention in 2016, it was Netflix’s Stranger Things. 

It’s gripping plot coupled with heady ’80s nostalgia – topped off by a truly kickass soundtrack – saw the show permeate the zeitgeist way beyond the TV realm. It’s been remixed by the likes of deadmau5 and Luke Million, and also dropped into sets by Dillon Francis and What So Not.

So it was probably only a matter of time until someone linked up the show’s famous theme, with one of the biggest singles of 2016: The Weeknd’s collaboration with Daft Punk, Starboy. Dropped via Twitter, it’s a near pitch-perfect mashup that even grabbed the attention of The Weeknd himself, who called the mix “dope as fuck”.
