Premiere: Maliboux hits a sonic bullseye with supercharged ‘Way 2 Sexy’ flip
Inventions are intended to solve a problem. For Maliboux, that was an absence of “Way 2 Sexy” flips to intersperse in his series of upcoming sets.
“I have a bunch of shows coming up in October and I was looking for edits/remixes of ‘Way 2 Sexy’ to play in my sets. After doing some digging on SoundCloud, I came up empty-handed,” the “Freakshow” producer told Dancing Astronaut.
And with that, identifying a “Way 2 Sexy” conversion fit for showtime became not a matter of sourcing, but rather one of creating. “I decided I would just make my own!” Maliboux said.
The solution is supercharged, adding sonic va-va-voom to the Certified Lover Boy staple. A soon-to-be crowd favorite currently loading, Maliboux’s revamped version remains faithful to his intention to “keep the integrity of the original” while giving it a “fun, bouncy, lighthearted twist—something [he] could play at a college party or festival.”
Since Maliboux tweeted a teaser of the take on September 15, the audio snippet has rightfully turned heads, winning the attention of fans seeking its formal release date, as well as Zedd, who, with an enthusiastic “PLS SEND ME,” signaled that the vivacious spin is likely to surface in his own impending sets.
As has been the case with Maliboux’s music, the “Way 2 Sexy (Maliboux Flip)” is a sonic bullseye that underscores his aim as ever-sharp, ever-on-target. Stream the “Way 2 Sexy” alteration sure to command the electronic circuit in full below, exclusively via Dancing Astronaut.—
