A Fresh Remix You Should Hear: GRiZ – “For The Love (Naderi Remix) [Ft. Talib Kweli]”
Allow your ears to be pleasantly introduced to the wavy sounds of Naderi – a new solo project from an Australian producer who has also been actively involved in the success stories of larger artists like Flume, What So Not, GRMM, and many others. Due to his fairly new existence in the scene, he’s been sharing his music via SoundCloud over the past few months and gaining tons of positive feedback from his followers. A few days ago, Naderi posted a remix of GRiZ’s “For the Love (feat. Talib Kweli).” And it has us swooning.
By almost completely recreating GRiZ’s original funky jam, Naderi manages to perfectly reassemble and layer the different noises and vocals heard in the first track into a blended sound of his own. The outcome? An new-waved, futuristic bass production that maintains just enough of the original tune’s defining beats to know it’s a remix.
The song even landed a spot on GRiZ’s Facebook page earlier this week, as the future-funk producer credited and complimented Naderi on his work.
“I never thought I would hear my song done this way,” states GRiZ in the Facebook post.
“And it makes me smile a lot.”
Starting out with Talib’s opening rap verse, the background noises are a blend of quiet, airy synths broken up with a defining, echoing clap beat. This beat continues for the first half of the song into the chorus, where it picks up and transforms shortly after. Using edited samples of Talib’s vocals at this point of the remix, he incorporates the samples into the background as the tune picks up into a second (insanely good) drop that’s completely different from the first. The song then descends into the third and final drop, which displays some trance-like chords with a chiller vibe, providing some appropriate relaxing energy before the jam closes out.
Hit play and enjoy. Also, be sure to check out GRiZ’s Fall 2015 tour dates (including a first-ever sold out show at Red Rocks Amphitheater) as he makes his way throughout the states for the rest of 2015.
