Teaching kids the value of helping others and introducing them to organizations that work to make everyone’s lives better is the focus of the live-action/animation hybrid “Mack & Moxy,” a new series geared for 3- to 7-year-olds and set to premiere on PBS stations nationwide on Friday.

Everything from electro to moombahton is heard throughout, as we get some very inspired and exciting takes on DJ Snake’s latest hit. Though most of the artists on here do good work, we’re leaning towards Snake’s “Get Low” collaborator, Dillon Francis’ remix, as being our favorite.
Obviously going with a moombahton vibe for his take on “Propaganda,” Francis delivers a banging interpretation of the track, as he strips away some of the trap elements found in the drop and instead sprinkles some of his signature sounds over it.
