Apparently it’s possible for a trap production to be longer than three and a half minutes and still thwart my generational ADD. If a hip hop legend and trap vanguard collaborated, what would be the result? It would probably be combination of old school samples and new school trill. Dare I say, trap hop? Living up to my expectations, Just Blaze channels The Blueprint in his production treasure chest and renews Jay-Z’s vocals from “U Don’t Know.” Mr. Carter also pays tribute to his longtime friend by providing a freshly recorded opening introduction. Baauer‘s contribution becomes clear as the bassline comes in, sprinkling reverb drums, nifty FX edits, and general badassery throughout. After previewing unintimidating house music from his forthcoming EP, “Higher” feels more indicative of Blaze’s style. Either way, we love his all-embracing approach to today’s dance music.
