Swedish pop star Elliphant’s release Only Getting Younger only gets harder after its rework from LA’s electro laureate, TJR.
He brings his standard battery of booty-commanding drums and a swerving sawtooth bassline to bear on yet another clinic in classic electro house, not easily found among today’s cavernous, kick-powered big room compositions. The original beat is a bassy blend of trap and dubstep courtesy of none other than Skrillex, and TJR keeps the energy level high despite slowing it down to 128, making Elliphant’s hedonistic verse sound far more deliberate and triumphant in nature over the four-on-the-floor beat. The piano-led intro resurfaces, however in the form of a mid-track breakdown, rounding out TJR’s most recent into a formidable electro romp of a remix.
