LA duo Slander slaps a schizophrenic spin on Jack U‘s festie trap anthem Take U There in their remix, made available for free today.
While Diplo and Skrillex‘ incendiary collab crashes forward with abandon at 160 BPM, Slander slows the agile bass tune down to a deliberate pound at 128, offering Kiesza’s vocals tons more space in which to sprawl out during the hair-raising build. Peak number one draws upon big kicks, reverberated droplets, and punchy synth for a big room house feel, leading to another spacious solo by Kiesza–check that lone thump announcing the return of her voice–demonstratively powerful.
Slander then shifts gears to top things off with a surprise twerk section without changing tempo, making for a remix firmly in touch with the musical ethos of Jack U–no rules, just riot.
