Slushii Trolls Jauz’s ‘Baby Shark’ Remix By Tweeting Out A “Leaked” Version And It Absolutely SLAPS

Jauz went really hard on the shark branding. It makes perfect sense given his name, but Jauz obviously never expected it to backfire, as it did when a children’s song from the 2000s exploded to the meme of the month. Of course, I am talking about ‘Baby Shark’. About a month ago, after months of

Slushii closes out 2018 with release of sophomore album, ‘DREAM’

Slushii closes out 2018 with release of sophomore album, ‘DREAM’Slushii Rukes

Sophomore albums represent an opportunity for artists to delve deeper into their respective sounds and to refine or even redevelop their sonic styles. Slushii‘s second full-length album, DREAM, arrives as the product of much in-studio introspection, which is audible in each one of the project’s 16 tracks. The contemplative nature of DREAM, however, will be unsurprising to Slushii fans, given the producer’s detailed announcement of the then forthcoming production back in November. “This time around I wondered what it would be like if I was 100 percent honest about my feelings in my music, and actually let my emotions and true self show,” Slushii wrote when he originally shared the news that a follow-up to Find Your Wings was on the way. “What you’re getting [in DREAM] is the darkest, and most nostalgic music I’ve ever released,” Slushii added.

Familiar elements of the upbeat, bouncy sound that Slushii spread across prior releases like 2017’s Out of Light, and earlier singles like “Twinbow” still glimmer on DREAM cuts. The gossamer, twinkling tones that originally endeared listeners to Slushii’s music revel in an airy optimism of sound on DREAM, where they co-exist among mid- to downtempo beat constructions, rather than the faster-paced arrangements that characterized previous Slushii productions. Representative of a musical approach that largely diverges from past Slushii showings, DREAM signifies a difference in Slushii’s creative process, and beyond that, an overall maturity and versatility of sound that beams in the soundscapes that collectively comprise DREAM.

Slushii goes hard on new single, ‘On My Own’Screen Shot 2018 10 01 At 12.04.09 PM

Slushii is showing no sign of slowing down this year and is back with some new tunes for his fans. This time, he’s unleashed his highly anticipated single titled “On My Own.” The song was first heard at Nocturnal Wonderland, and the producer debuted the final edit at Life Is Beautiful a few weeks ago. The record runs for three minutes straight of Slushii’s signature drops, 808s, high-pitched vocals, and pure mayhem. Along with the lyrics, “I’m gonna do this on my own,” Slushii showcases his versatility by transitioning from heavy bass to trance in a matter of seconds.

The Los Angeles-based producer teased the record to his 673k followers on Instagram, sharing a snippet of the record with a moving graphic of the single cover art. Just two weeks prior, he dropped his explosive remix of Charlie Puth’s “The Way I Am.”

Slushii is back with a brand new remix of Charlie Puth‘s “The Way I Am.” The new remix effort comes off of Puth’s recently released sophomore album titled Voicenotes, which managed to obtain a Gold certification within four days of its release.

Slushii uses the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter’s vocals as the centerpiece of the remix, accented by dreamy piano chords, weaving in steep drum builds before a stomping rave-ready break. Injecting Puth’s original work with a hefty tempo bump, the young LA-based beatmaker dips into crossover appeal, using the original’s radio pop groundwork to lean into electro house and happy hardcore territories. The record was premiered by Puth on all streaming platforms, along with a balancing acoustic version to temper Slushii’s fiery dance floor ignitor.
