Pumped Up Kicks (Foster The People Cover) – Cris Cab

September 21, 2011

I fell for “Pumped Up Kicks” last year. After numerous remixes and mashups, I still preferred the original. But then I heard this. Cris Cab covers Foster the People in style. Using clean and minimalistic reggae instrumentation, he changes the whole attitude of the song. Clean is a really key word for this cover. The production is spotless and his vocals are clear and sweet. Now that I can really hear the lyrics, I realize how violent this song is. I never knew. But this version is unstoppably beautiful. Spotted on Decently Dope. I know you’ll enjoy this one.

Pumped Up Kicks (Foster The People Cover) – Cris Cab



  1. Nice site. Got songs that I’ve missed out.
    This one is the best song that I have missed out on. Can’t believe I missed out a “Chris Cab” song. You know he’s Pharrell’s protege. His black and yellow cover is one of my favorites..
    Check out my blog if you have the time. It’s decent!


    • Glad you like it! Yeah Cab is awesome. Cool stuff, I downloaded some songs from your CatScream Chill post.


  2. This is great. Love a new version of this song that isn’t dubstep xD

    • Yeah it feels really fresh
