The inevitable merge of mainstream music and EDM draws closer with Gigi Barocco’s bombastic remix of Dan Black and Kid Cudi’s Symphonies.
For the few years that I’ve been familiar with Gigi Barocco, his name has always gone hand in hand with some of the deepest, darkest fidget around. This time though, it’s all about Dutch house. I’m not sure whether this is the general direction that Gigi is moving towards or just just what he saw fit for this track in particular, but holy hell is it sweet. The breakdowns are subject to some tasteful vocal chopping which really takes the buildup to the next level.
Personally I’d say this is some of the best Dutch house released all year. Whether or not he stays on that path doesn’t matter too much to me. This track shows that the man has talent and I can’t wait to hear more from him.
