DA Launchpad Selects:
We all know that Lil Uzi Vert has taken the rap game by storm. In fact, some would argue he’s taken on the Rock game as well. With the help of Luca Lush, he might be verging on the dance and electronic game as well. Keeping the singular vocals of Uzi’s original “XO Tour Life” largely intact, Luca adds a layer of heavy trap and bass, which complements Uzi’s verses surprisingly well. Wait for the drop on this one…
This one has more of a summer vibe to it, but we couldn’t resist any song that successfully samples The Police. Sting’s vocals are complemented with a pitched up, unrecognizable vocal sample that really brings FOUNDRS “Every Step” remake into 2017 and beyond. There’s a little bit of everything here: electronic synth melodies, vocal chop samples, and a catchy-as-hell drum pattern. Vibe to this.
