Crankdat continues his fan-favorite remix work with Sheck Wes’ viral sensation “Mo Bamba,” shortly after re-cranking three tracks from Travis Scott‘s wildly popular Astroworld album. On the “Mo Bamba” rework, pitched-down bells sit atop menacing bass, that create a haunting contrast right from the start. Sheck Wes’ vocals maintain the energy that the original cut is known for, dropping into screeching synths and a spooky melody above a bed of grumbling sub bass. Then, a second drop is introduced with angry, pitched-down synthwork.
The Cleveland, Ohio-native producer dedicated 2018 to really honing in on his sound, slightly leaning away from his heavy-hitting remixes, and towards building his catalog of original works. Some of Crankdat’s more popular remixes include re-cranks of San Holo’s “Lights,” Blackbear’s “IDFC,” Zeds Dead’s “Ratchet,” and Jaden Smith’s “Icon.”
