Banks’s latest album Goddess has inspired countless remixes to date, so I wasn’t too surprised when I saw stwo’s own rendition of Drowning today, although I give him props for having it officially recognized by Banks herself. This remix truly embodies the brooding and melancholic nature of Goddess’s production. It’s minimal and ambient, which really allows Banks’s vocals to shine through. Cop the free download and vibe out.
I’ve got one word to describe this remix just released on Cream Collective: massive. First things first though, if you don’t know Banks yet, get to know her, because she is what’s hot right now. She’s got a way of being brooding and sexy in her music, all at the same time and if you head on over to her soundcloud page you’ll see what I mean. This Is What It Feels Like was originally a mellow, downtempo song. But with its focus on bass and synths, it makes sense that production due Wizard and Scizzahz, known by the moniker Lobser Music, flipped it onto its trap side. Complete with vocal echoes and eerie synths, Lobster Music has delivered a creation that you’ll be bumpin until your speakers blow out. Oh, and did we mention it’s a free download? Happy Friday, students.
