Flume – Never Be Like You (Ashiro’s ‘Only Human’ Flip)
Remixing one of the year’s biggest tracks, off one of the biggest albums, by one of the year’s biggest artists, is a daunting enough task to give even the most seasoned professional pause. But that has not stopped underground Detroit producer Ashiro, who’s put a bombastic spin on Flume’s “Never Be Like You,” a track that was just recently certified double platinum.
Ashiro pumps his flip full of energy, with sharp chords and ringing synth leads that dance around each other over thundering kicks and concussive snares that hit like cannon shots. It’s always exciting to see new producers arrive on the scene with the fearlessness and ambition to take on the work of established icons, and Ashiro does this with impressive results.
