[PREMIERE] Ganz Flips Hoodboi's "Closer" Ft Astr Into Smooth Future Bass Perfection

Hoodboi - Closer (GANZ Remix)

 Dutch producer Jordy Saamena, better known as GANZ, is no stranger to TSIS, having dropped a bevy of exquisite future bass concoctions over the past few years. Most recently, we featured his OWSLA collaboration with What So Not, "Lone" featuring the vocals of JOY.

GANZ and his melodic prowess are back at it with an official remix of Hoodboi's newest single, "Closer," on Fools Gold. Label boss A-Trak premiered the lustrous single himself on Apple Beats1 Radio and is now rolling out the remix package, which also includes ELOQ, Rytmeklubben and MYRNE.

GANZ strips the original of its retro synths and instead underlays ASTR's vocals with a soft piano progression that is counteracted by airy snare hits. The percussion steadily intensifies in the build and then nosedives into an explosive future bass drop.

Fans can also look forward to his "GAO EP" being released on May 13 under his label, The Hard Headed.

Joey Bada$$ has unveiled yet another single to follow the releases of "No. 99," "Big Dusty," "On & On," and "Curry Chicken" as today marks two weeks out from the release of his debut studio album, B4.DA.$$.  As a Zane Lowe BBC 1 featured track, "Teach Me" has been dubbed "the hottest record in the world right now," and leaves us incredibly excited to hear this young Brooklyn rapper's forthcoming album. Teaming up with fellow Pro Era producer Chuck Strangers and New York’s ASTR provides for a horn laced beat that brings a higher energy level than we’ve seen previously from Joey. “Teach Me” serves as a bonus track off the album and features pop singer Kiesza on the amazingly catchy hook. This tune displays Joey's versatility as he successfully steps out of his comfort zone to create a hip hop dance song with a poppy feel.
