Netsky continues to broaden his range with his newest effort,”I Don’t Even Know You Anymore,” featuring Bazzi and Lil Wayne. The track infuses a humming bassline that dances around Bazzi’s vocals, creating a radio-friendly hip-hop tracks that merges an electronic backdrop with vocals done by the two heavy-hitters.
The track was featured on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music, and Netsky discussed both the track itself and the larger project the release is a part of, titled Palmtrees & Powerlines.
“Man, I’m excited to have this record out,” Netsky told listeners on the show. “I’ve been working on it for a while. Me and Bazzi didn’t get the time to get in the studio for this record, but I got sent the song … because we were both touring … I got sent this song and I loved it from the second I heard it.” He continues, “So we worked on lots of different productions. We ended up with a version that we both really loved. It turned out, it was a childhood dream for both of us to work with Lil Wayne, who is obviously an icon and a legend to both of us. So it’s amazing to have him finish this record. I think it’s an incredible addition to it. I’m excited.”
The release is the third installment from forthcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, a two-part project that explores both Netsky’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (on Powerlines). Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds.
