Over the past week or so, there’s been a lot of quality tunes being pumped out, but none have caught my ear more than GRiZ‘s remix of “Slap Me” by Kill Paris. I’ve always felt that adding a funk’d out, slap-and-pop bass guitar to any style of music (Mudvayne and Red Hot Chili Peppers come to mind) is a recipe for success, and this certainly continues to feed that trend. Using that bass and some brassy synths, it sets up a funktastic, groovin’ vibe and eventually adds in flavors of dubstep. My favorite part about this remix is the fact that the feel never changes. Even after splicing in some dubstep, it still screams funk.
The whole Kill Paris EP, To A New Earth, will be released by OWSLA on the 26th of this month. This remix will be on that release, but until then, you can grab it for free.

Hello, my name’s Justin. I’m 25-years old and have been a music enthusiast for as long as I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed EDM, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I truly embraced it and fell in love with the community. My enthusiasm has evolved into passion, and I’m thankful to the EJ team for providing me with a medium to share it with all of you.
