[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.

Australian taste-making beatmaker / producer Ta-Ku manages to blow us away with each and every new production. Last month we featured his first single "Love Again", off his upcoming EP Songs To Make Up To, which included soulful vocals from JMSN and co-production from Sango. With today’s newest release, “Long Time No See”, he’s partnered up with another amazing Soulection artist named Atu to create a more chilled out, smooth production. Starting out slowly on the piano, the track glides through the air with a chilling ambiance to it, breaking in drums, hi-hats and samples mid-way, layered together to create a very emotional, feel good track. You can stream the tune below and pre-order Songs To Make Up To which is set to release June 12th.

A-Trak Releases Outrageous Music Video For "Push" Full Of Nudity, Tigers & More

A-Trak Releases Outrageous Music Video For "Push" Full Of Nudity, Tigers & More - Featured Image

One of dance music's biggest trend setters and head of the influential Fool's Gold Records, mixmaster A-Trak has always been on top of the game.  However, recently the CEO has been on an entirely new level, putting out a full length mixtape last month with DC rapper Wale featuring an all star cast including A$AP Ferg, Chance The Rapper, and Pusha T that was released for free to celebrate the holiday 'Festivus'.  One of his biggest singles yet is his disco infused electro anthem "Push" drawing some classic inspiration delivered in a very modern way.

The song has been gaining huge momentum, and A-Trak has just brought it to life with an outrageous new music video. Featuring cameos from A-Trak himself, Atlanta producer TM88 of 808 Mafia, a series of Nude models, and even a tiger, it is impossible to be bored through the length of the video.

A-Trak even had a few words on why he chose this direction for the music video. "My approach to dance music has always been a bit left, so the last thing I wanted was one of those sparkler bottle 'lets make this night live forever!' videos". "Instead, I wanted to make something with the opulence of a rap video, but shot like a renaissance painting. It's kind of like Eyes Wide Shut meets Burning Man."
