DJ Mustard drops a new remix package, including three accomplished reworks of Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO TOUR Llif3,” Khalid’s “Location” and Childish Gambino’s “Redbone,” all three are out now as free downloads.
Kicking things off with an evocative remix of “XO TOUR Llif3,” DJ Mustard breathes new electronic life into the original by way of massive synth stabs layered over a bass heavy drum section, and chopped up vocals by Lil Uzi Vert. His remix of “Location,” picks things up from the start with a melodic synth plucked introduction which leads to an emotive vocal rework of the original. The record builds into an atmospheric, and bass heavy remix, with plenty of swing and electronic emotion. On “Redbone,” Mustard tastefully reorganizes the original’s sonic elements; with transposed vocals, a trap induced drum section and analog synth stabs that pump massive energy into the mix. Overall the remix retains the emotion of the original but boosts it into an energy packed, dancefloor banger.
The remix package as a whole showcases DJ Mustard’s sonic ability to fuse elements of electronic dance music and trap. The release is an early glimpse into the direction and evolution of the talented producer’s prosperous career ahead, and will not be soon forgotten.
