Since launching his Fantastic Voyage collective three years ago, Justin Jay has come into his own as a musician—not just with his extensive band project that taps into numerous genres across the musical spectrum, but rather in terms of his overall approach to music which is to simply have fun.
Justin came up DJing house parties with the friends he is is still performing with today. Now, he gets to make music that embodies that spirit, oftentimes just adding a cool twist on a great party track. That’s exactly what he has done to NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg‘s ‘Redlight.’
Before Justin Jay remixed this track it was exactly what one would expect from the pair of artists who claim production credit. It’s heavy, reeling, and oh so fitting for a playlist with the term “turn up” in the title. Then Justin Jay shows up and with just a little tweaking, turns it into an uptempo stepper.
Flosstradamus gives NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg‘s “REDLIGHT” a bass upgrade in his brand new remix of the recent collaboration. In the original, A$AP Ferg’s punching verses feed off the intensity of shrill horns, drum rolls, and deep-seated drops, all of which imbue “REDLIGHT” with an aggressive, cinematic sonic personality that renders the track yet another hype-inducing number to bear the NGHTMRE stamp. NGHTMRE followed the debut of the hip-hop electronic hybrid with a VIP rework of the original, where NGHTMRE sank the song’s defining bass synths to a graver, low-end position.
NGHTMRE’s submission of the throttling original and rework of the aforementioned has now caught the attention of trap aficionado, Flosstradamus, who comes through with a hard hitting “REDLIGHT” revamp. Flosstradamus’ re-imaginative effort is no less potent than either of NGHTMRE’s showings. Flosstradamus preserves the adrenaline spiking horn work and A$AP Ferg’s verses. Much of the producer’s revision is audible in the tune’s builds, where Flosstradamus swaps out the simmering ascent of NGHTMRE’s original for a rise that is noticeably quicker in pace. The ascents momentarily give way to drops derivative of Flosstradamus’ trap expertise. As the trap veteran’s remix so incontrovertibly conveys, there’s certainly nothing weak about Flosstradamus’ version of the NGHTMRE fan favorite.
