Chi Duly x The Weeknd – Balloons Of Haus
After he impressed the world with his October’s Very Cold project, combining the likes of Coldplay & Drake, Chi Duly is back with a mixtape offering his unique take on some of The Weeknd’s most popular tunes. Chi explains that Balloons of Haus is “‘house music for the “I’m not really into techno’ folks.” More or less, Chi Duly takes The Weeknd’s appealing subject matter to a new level as he provides renditions of the songs more applicable to a ‘party’ setting.

The Weeknd – House Of Balloons
Less than two months ago, few of us had ever heard of the Weeknd. Then, as soon as the creepy R&B tracks from this free mixtape began to circulate, the hype engine revved up. There was the Drake cosign, the album art that looked like Spiritualized crossed with Tumblr art-porn, the missing vowel, the stylish samples, and the project’s creators hiding in the shadows. You can’t buy buzz like this, and the Weeknd’s quick rise to Internet fame, both in indie circles and in parts of the mainstream, raised fascinating questions about the blurrier-than-ever lines between those two audiences and the underground’s newfound embrace of R&B.
