Premiere: Jeffree’s 32: Foxsky – The Whip EP
Mad Decent’s Jeffree’s imprint celebrates its 32nd birthday with a 5-track remix EP of Foxsky’s “The Whip.” Just like my five-year-old self – mainlining rails of pixie dust while playing Super NES – Foxsky’s original is an amphetamine-laced 8-bit monstrosity, one that kicks and screams at every game over. Diagnosed with ADD but never treated, Foxsky dabbles in a variety of genres, putting together a blend of dub and electro at a moombahton pace. The rest of EP is equally unique, enlisting ETC!ETC!, The Reef, Vass, and Udachi for remix duties. ETC!ETC! brings in the deep toms and trap flair, The Reef unleashes a hyperactive section of tribal percussion and newcomer Vass delivers a floor-shaking trap remix before Udachi’s puts a bmore spin on the track’s 8-bit aesthetic.
