G Jones revives an old classic, with ‘Drift (Acid Mix)’G Jones Maclyn Bean

Audacious experimentalist, G Jones has taken an acid-fueled stroll down memory lane. His newest release appears in the form of a rendition of “Drift,” first featured on the bass connoisseur’s debut EP way back in 2012, before getting the VIP treatment just a year later.

As gripping as it is frenetic, “Drift (Acid Mix)” emboldens Jones to flex the production wizardry that he’s known for, having been donned “the most gifted Ableton beatmaker” ever seen by none other than DJ Shadow himself. With the cut’s heavy infusion of acid synth work, the latest release takes on an audible flavor a bit unlike Jones’ typical work, while still possessing many of the Cali-based producer’s signature elements, from his hyper-attentive drumlines to the flipbook of melodic climaxes that his work is commonly lauded for. Organized chaos at its finest, the newest take on “Drift” never loses focus among the clutter of such a high-paced production.

“Drift (Acid Mix)” comes ahead of G Jones’ recently announced Tangential Zones, the respective epilogue to 2018’s widely embraced The Ineffable Truth.

Mat Zo thrills with new VIP mix of ‘Vice’

Mat Zo thrills with new VIP mix of ‘Vice’Mat Zo Self Assemble

Back in September, Mat Zo released his standalone drum and bass track, “Vice.” The track blended Mat Zo’s signature sound across genre and tempo. Filtered-down half-time sections, pitched-up vocal runs, three unique builds and drops, and immaculate synth lines made “Vice” a true example of how much of a virtuoso the Mad Zoo head truly is. Despite the display of skill that is “Vice,” Mat Zo has never been one to leave things alone. The vocals in the original came from an unfinished but great clip called “Stoned Clip 1.wav,” which can still be found on SoundCloud.

“Vice” was released under Mat Zo instead of his drum and bass alias, MRSA, and now it’s clear why. He knew he’d be playing around with this track for a minute, as well as playing it live. The VIP mix has the same atmospheric build as the original — an 8-bit, synth wave, fueled by the city-at-night feeling. The bass bends, and the energy builds and breaks down in more and more unique ways. “Vice – VIP” is polished, reworked, and truly exceptional. It’s even the exact same length at 6 minutes and 53 seconds.

2018 — a year where CGI-animated characters can become pop-stars and link with marquee producers insanely catchy dance tracks. What a time to be alive.

Bauuer‘s latest single “Hate Me,” featuring the digital art project turned Instagram model/musician Miquela, has been gaining steady traction since its August 17 release. The world’s bound to shake when a former viral sensation collaborates on a song with a new age social media phenomenon, so it only made sense for Baauer to circle back with his own equally intriguing VIP mix. So far, we’ve got a a cutting-edge lyric video, which was Miquela’s first moving on-screen appearance, and now Baauer’s back with his own second take spin on “Hate Me.”

Bauuer takes the quirky, upbeat pop-leaning framework of the original track and given it a buzzing VIP mix designed for club monitors. The edit is perfectly crafted to make a climactic appearance at an upcoming Bauuer performance, with looped Miquela vocals building straight into an bumping, distorted trap break. Baauer and Miquela proved to be a complementary pairing on their collaborative effort, but Baauer’s solo take might be one of his strongest outings of the year.

Sevenn release VIP versions of hit tracks ‘BYOB’ and ‘Boom’

This post was originally published on this site


Newport Beach duo Sevenn are no strangers to manufacturing club-ready beats, landing them high-profile collaborations with the likes of Alok and Tiësto. These collaborations resulted in “BYOB” and “Boom,” respectively, which wave been fixtures in main stage sets for the past two festival seasons. The duo may have already taken over the main stage, but they did not stop there.

Sevenn have released VIP mixes of both tracks, taking the already high-energy tunes and interlacing them with dirty drops. “BYOB” retains its core melody with a pulsing bass spin-off layered over the big room house beat listeners are accustomed to.

The rework of “Boom” is more transformative, with hints of the original peeking through the addition of synth progressions, instrumentals, and a hint of creepy carnival music leading into a heavy dubstep drop.

Virtual Riot – Everyday ft Yosie (VIP)

This post was originally published on this site

Virtual Riot is finishing off 2017 strong with a fiery VIP mix of his summer track “Everyday.”

The song, which came out in July, was a light and breezy tune that showed a softer side of the versatile producer. Featuring the alluring vocals of Yosie, “Everyday” captured a perfect summer vibe.

Months later, Virtual Riot has released a VIP mix of the song — one that’s much heavier than the original it’s derived from.

The VIP mix starts off much the same as the original: focused on Yosie’s soothing vocals over a lighthearted bed of synths. Virtual Riot builds to something much more formidable, though, as he takes the listener through a bridge that contains elements of drum & bass. The first drop is hard-hitting heavy bass and dubstep, while the second drop leans more to trap stylings.

The VIP mix serves has a perfect showcase for the variety of genres the artist is well-versed at producing.

This post was originally published on this site

Don Diablo‘s highly anticipated track “Take Her Place” has seen some major buzz since its release, featuring soothing electronics from Jersey-native trio A R I Z O N A. The original may have leaned more on the trio’s side of things in terms of production style, centered on vocals and a slower tempo. This time around, Don Dialo leans into his own style and puts his spin on “Take Her Place” with a VIP mix of the track.

The mix includes a more rapid tempo in addition to upbeat, melodic piano chords that easily accompany the eccentric vocals of the original. The drop is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser with its feel-good assortment of synths and vocal motifs.
