Brisbane producer Zathlute dropped onto my radar about a year ago with this corker of a remix of Hermitude’s track “Ukiyo” as part of the triple j -lead remix competition. (Did someone say banger?). That remix was then backed up with an equally hectic remix of already fairly hectic act Die Antwoord and their track “DIS IZ WHY I’M HOT“.
Well it would appear that ur boi Zathlute has just dropped his first “o f f i c i a l” release with the track “Higher” – available now as a free-download from his Soundcloud below. It’s got that wall-of-noise-drop-but-I-kinda-like-it quality that Porter Robinson is pretty well known for, but also those super delicate shimmering chords in the lower moments of the song.
The elements on “Higher” aren’t exactly new and with acts like Oh Boy, MUTO and Feki already pushing similar beats it’s gonna be tough to rise to the top but suffice to say that we already can’t wait to see what Zathlute has lined up next!
