Sharp as ever, So Dope cuts Travis Scott‘s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” an electronic edge in a brand new VIP bootleg. Armed with the hard trap technics that have characterized his catalog to date, namely “Catch Me Now” and “come for me,” the New York native converts Scott’s original from an anticlimactic hip-hop outing to a rousing hybrid.
The lulling collection of chords at the onset of So Dope’s bootleg border on dreamy in description; they’re vaporously smooth, but they don’t set the precedent for the sound that will follow on So Dope’s revamp. As streamers familiar with So Dope’s sound know, a sonic plot twist is to come.
It accordingly unfolds at the one-minute mark; the break down is accelerant and shrill, satiating in the trap turn that it takes. Replete with pummeling bass and the distinct grit of aggressive trap, the drops that So Dope engineers on his VIP Bootleg are hammering additions to “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” that augment the firepower of the flip. So Dope’s style, evidently, remains blazing hot.
So Dope’s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM (VIP Bootleg)” will formally release on November 25. Listeners can stream the producer’s latest electronic endeavor one-day early, only on Dancing Astronaut.
