Michael Woods – The Pit (gLAdiator Remix)
Los Angeles based twin-turbo trap tag team, gLAdiator, has been making big waves all year with their hard, gritty, heavily hip-hop influenced sound. The two producers have asserted themselves as a force to be reckoned with at the intersection of bass music and hip-hop by remixing the likes of Jay Z and TLC, while also showcasing major talent with bass-gushing original work as well. The duo’s latest tune comes by way of their remix of “The Pit” by Michael Woods.
The original is a pulsing progressive house tune, perfect for a packed dance floor. gLAdiator then takes the original and makes it their own, fusing the build with heavy kicks, followed by a drop riddled with metalic industrial synths and a couple of quick samples. Replacing Michael Wood’s bumping sirens and thumping electro break down with their dark, minimal trap treatment, gLAdiator’s jaw grinding remix certainly reflects these producers’ promising talents.
