By reducing the power of the breaks on GRiZ’ single Stop Trippin’, Chill Harris (pictured), the producer formerly known as Kill Paris, flips a trap-inspired future funk jam into what could easily be described as an ’80s power pop-meets-chilled electro groove.
The original take on this production is built on GRiZ’ ubiquitous saxophone and Ida Hawk’s vocal doing a point/counterpoint with booming half-time breaks. Chill Harris’ remix errs in a different direction, as the horns, synths and vocal slide along a now glistening low end, easing into breaks that now gently thump along. Regarding the remix, Chill Harris writes, “I was stoked to chill this remix out for my funk brother GRIZ. I was inspired by cruise control drives through the Rocky Mountains. Sit back, light one up, and chill to this.”
