Flite re-doses RL Grime’s ‘Core’ with drum ‘n’ bass magic
In spite of his young age, Flite has navigated the drum ‘n’ bass scene with the prowess and maturity of an experienced artist. Producing as early as 16 years old and breaking onto the scene at 19 years old in 2014 with debut single “Featherfall,” the Texas-based talent has gained rapid momentum in recent years—following through with 14 releases in 2017 and garnering support from drum n’ bass giants like Andy C, High Contrast, Netsky, and more. With diversity ingrained in his artistic pursuits, Flite and his sound fluctuate in its exploration of the drum ‘n’ bass spectrum. Now, the rising star reworks an RL Grime classic, “Core,” with his latest UKF release.
In his flip of “Core,” Flite transforms the original trap soundscape into a massive drum ‘n’ bass track. Energizing the quintessential drop with flesh-crawling synthesizers and rolling breakbeats, the remix kicks the tempo up while maintaining the dark essence of the original. Deliciously sinister with potent pace, Flite’s remix delivers the drum ‘n’ bass makeover without straying from the skeleton of the beloved RL Grime original.
