Canadian dubstep/electro house living legends Adventure Club have been relatively quiet for the past year or so releasing just two original tracks titled “Fade” and “Crash 2.0” and two remixes as well. The group, comprised of Christian Srigley and Leighton James, first started turning heads in 2011 with their incredibly refreshing remix of Flight Facilities original track “Crave You”. Since then the duo has continued to carve their name into the etching stone of the EDM history books by producing one of the most unique and distinguishable sounds out there with original tracks like “Retro City” and “Gold” being perfect examples.
Just yesterday Adventure Club went and surprised everyone by releasing their first original track in nearly six months, completely unannounced. The song is titled “Limitless” and features the exceptionally smooth vocals of Delaney Jane. It begins with a thumping bass guitar coupled with a soft piano chord progression and topped off with a simple drum beat, all brought together with Jane’s gorgeous vocal work. The drop consists of a the classic Adventure Club full, yet soft sounding synth that they have become known and loved for by all their devoted fans. This track gives the listener a feeling of floating on a cloud in the sky, like being pulled up into a “limitless” euphoria with a pulsating bass line and angelic vocals. I’m really hoping that Adventure Club has an album in the works, or at least another EP.
Now to completely switch up the tempo on you, I will examine Lookas’s brand new remix for Travis Scott’s original track “Antidote”. Lookas is a rising star in the trap world, with an extremely unique style of music that can best be described as hard trap (a mixture of hard style and trap). His remix of War’s classic rock hit “Low Rider” is one of his best tracks as well as his original track “Samurai”. This new remix however is unlike anything he has released before, blending dubstep and trap together to create a monster of a track.
The original Travis Scott track dropped about three months ago and with the popularity he’s gained in the that amount of time, it’s no surprise that Lookas decided to take this track and flip it upside down. Lookas’s remix begins with a pretty much completely unaltered version of the intro with some added high hat and snare work. The song only takes about 45 seconds to transform from rap anthem into a firestorm of dubstep debauchery. The first drop leans a little more towards the trap side, while the second drop comes and obliterates the listener with a piercing rhythm which reminds me a lot of something SKisM would produce. The album artwork for the track has a little message at the bottom that says “Album coming soon… Sincerely, Lookas”, so you can expect more from this bass heavy rising super star in the near future.
