HxdB "Stylish Cadaver (Grenier Remix)"
Up-and-coming DJ/producer Severine Erickson (a.k.a. >HxdB) is set to release his latest record, the Up EP, via Sounds of Sumo. The Vancouver artist's new offering features two originals and four remixes from the likes of Bwana, Pasteman, Bassmynt, and featured here, Grenier. Erickson's original is a dark and funky 2-step refix of Aaliyah's classic "Rock the Boat" that features trancey synths and deep sub tones. In Grenier's version, the tunesmith chops up the vocals—rendering the late R&B queen's voice practically anonymous to an untrained ear—and adds in bright, mystifying synths with hard-hitting breakbeat drums. And if you're feeling "Stylish Cadaver (Grenier Remix)," be sure to grab the whole EP when it drops on October 4.
