First Listen: Zane Lowe drops his infectious spin over rising star Ava Max’s ‘So Am I’ [Stream]Zane Lowe Djing

In a league with Annie Nightingale, Howard Stern, and Casey Kasem, Zane Lowe represents one of the most popular and distinguished voices in all of radio. An artist’s music, or their story, catching his ear is one thing, but for Lowe to be impressed enough to actually roll up his sleeves and lay his spin on an artist’s track is a whole different ballgame altogether. In fact, it has been seven years since the last time Lowe turned in a remix, though the production hiatus is now over with a vibrant remix of Ava Max’s “So Am I.”

The Beats 1 figurehead lays an infectious, summery spin over Max’s sweeping pop hit. Taking the track from the radio to the pool deck with his remix, Lowe manipulates Max’s vocals to make them his own, polished with tropical drums for a pair of sweet, pleasant breaks. Ava Max is on her way to being a household name. The Atlantic-championed singer was recently nominated for Best New Artist at the 2019 MTV VMA’s, placing her profile alongside a class of current wave makers including Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and Lil Nas X.

Ava Max’s trajectory to pop success looks firmly set in stone, but a rare, and ultimately satisfying appearance from Zane Lowe, might give Max some crossover credibility in the electronic space as well. Listen below.
