Baauer gives Gorillaz ‘Saturnz Barz’ a trap tune-up
Anticipation continues to mount as the Gorillaz tease the release of their HUMANZ LP, driven further by its recent remixes from some momentous names in electronic music. With just one week to go until we are graced with the new album – the virtual band’s first full-length project in over five years – ZHU has released his haunting remix to the group’s DRAM-assisted song, “Andromeda.” Now, the viral alt-electronic group has enlisted the help of trap and bass music producer, Baauer, on their track, “Saturn Barz.”
In his take on the track, the Philadelphia native keeps the group’s original construction as the focal, with it’s heavily hip-hop influenced ethos, adding in a deeper bass line and only few subtle trap elements here and there. Baauer’s influence really shines during the song’s second drop, with a safe but edgy breakdown that will having listeners moving in a four-to-the-floor manner.
