Have you ever heard a Calvin Harris song you didn’t like? Me neither. And now we have Slander on our radar, an outstanding electronic trap music duo from L.A., who also seem to be showing their love for Calvin’s great taste in beats. These guys bring their A-game in their new remix of “Awooga”, one of my favorite tracks off of one of Calvin’s recent albums, “18 Months”. They trap-ified the original and came up with this off the hook banger that I can’t wait to upload onto my iPod for the gym. If you want a reference as to what their sound is like, their main influences are coming from an impressive list of musical geniuses: Flosstradamus, RL Grime, TNGHT, Rustie, and Diplo.
This big, bad remix was actually released as the premiere of the “Imanos x Life + Times ‘Trap Nation’ Mixtape, along with many other highly valued artists that will be featured on the tracklist like gLAdiator, ETC!ETC!, Brillz, Singularity, and many more. The best part about it all is that the mixtape was actually approved by Jay-Z himself, so that’s when you know it’s gotta be good. Check it out and get your free individual download of each track on the mixtape via ThisSongIsSick.com (at a later date), and the Calvin Harris-Awooga (Slander Remix) here now!
