Flume recently returned to his solo efforts with Some Minds featuring Andrew Wyatt, his first original production since the Lockjaw EP with Chet Faker, which of course included the massively popular Drop The Game.
Since its release, his collaborative tune with the in-demand Miike Snow vocalist has been a veritable gauntlet dropped on the DAWs of experimental producers everywhere. This edition of Remix Roundup focuses on our five favorite flips of Some Minds.
Trap | XVII Flip
Winnipeg’s XVII has seen big support on his synth-heavy flip that pays homage to the master with massive chord surges separating out flashes of minimal-yet-inventive percussion.
Indie Dance | Pink Slip Remix
Atlanta/Nashville-based dormroom beat doctor Pink Slip whips out a funkier take that takes into consideration the solemnity of the original while cultivating a party vibe.
Twerk | Instant Party! Rework
Washington’s Instant Party! lives up to his name with a twerk-ready remix that uses some seriously unique elements outside of its textbook bootie-bouncing drop, namely that strum build–beautifully original.
Future Bass | Luca Lush Remix
Future bass’ new valedictorian Luca Lush lays down a rich rework that, aside from the wide open vocal passages, makes itself almost unrecognizable from the original–until Wyatt’s voice returns suddenly and just in time to usher in the next patch of Lush soundscape. Leave it to Luca to take it further than anyone else.
Trap | T-Mass Remix
Bay Area beatmaker T-Mass takes us home with a slow-burning trap remix with a booming bottom end. Turn the bass up for this one.
