MUST LISTEN: Baauer’s alt-J flip is heavy trap savagery
Baauer has followed up his huge remix for Flume with a heavy trap rework of alt-J‘s “In Cold Blood.” The producer prepares the listener for his colossal track with a foreboding introduction. Daring, brassy horns and the English band’s sultry vocals make the perfect lead-up to the colossal trap drop.
Though Baauer’s flipped the original song into a bold, bass-y remix, the original song simmers just underneath the surface. The New York producer has taken the sturdy bones of the original track and magnified them, heightening the intensity and creating a dance-floor masterpiece in the process.
