Vato Gonzalez – Volified Riddim (Original Mix)
In a Guitar Center feature interview from earlier this year, Dim Mak Records label-head and all-round industry mogul, Steve Aoki voiced his focus on experimenting and advancing innovative sound design into his brand. With that in mind, it’s no wonder Dim Mak had picked up the latest record by Vato Gonzalez. As an incredibly balanced DJ/producer hybrid, Vato showcases his own ability to whip up unique synth design into “Volified Riddim”. The usage of “Riddim” in a handful of song titles is a trend that reflects the Dutchman’s distinguished rhythmic style. In this track, the “Dirty House” pioneer combines a cut-up, modulated dancehall vocal sample with a powerful synth that mimics multiple bounce drum roll rudiments. Vato’s percussive knowledge lends a creative hand to channel his apparent raw and uncompromised energy. Available on iTunes on January 14th.
