Wafa "Pop Up (Canblaster Remix)"
What's so enjoyable about French producer Canblaster's (pictured above) remix of Wafa's "Pop Up" track, which is taken from his Ewid Disco 12" for Sinden's new Grizzly label, is the many forms the house-inspired number takes while always remaining focused entirely on the dancefloor. This new version goes through a few movements with its five-minute runtime; an energetic synth melody and pumping future-house beat kick off the tune before the rhythm cuts into halftime and some massive bass tones are introduced, which is then followed by a fresh marimba melody and more pulsing synth sounds and spaced-out effects. As much as it seems like Canblaster's remix can't decide exactly which direction it wants to take, the quick changes in trajectory blend well with the track's other moments—making for not only great get-down possibilities, but exciting headphone experiences, as well.
