Undeniably one of the biggest songs to hit the bass side of the dance music in 2014 was none other than Skrillex and Diplo's debut Jack Ü single “Take Ü There”. Gracing us on the last day of 2014, OWSLA has decided to bless us with a new Take Ü There remix by none other than Australian future bass star L D R U who is also one half of Carmada.
L D R U infuses his signature melodic synths with flume-esque vocal chops creating a very fun and bouncy remix. He retained Kiesza’s powerful vocals while adding in trap and future bass influences which makes this my favorite out of all the remixes dropped so far. OWSLA has released the stream today and if you’re lucky enough to be a Nest IV member you can login and snatch up a free download. Enjoy
