[DRUM N’ BASS/ELECTRONIC] Cazzette – Sleepless (Count Ninjula Remix)
As most of you can agree, life is quite the adventure. It includes the Yin and the Yang. It encompasses the beauty of a starry night and the extremities of nature. Each and every one of us wakes up every single day with an outlook on how we think the following day, week, month, year, or our entire lifetime will play out. Well, in my experience, regardless of the number of curve balls thrown your way during this journey, the reality is that life goes on…if you want it to. You have to crave the desire to get up and do some shit. You need to buckle down.
While finding the fuel for that fire, we’re left to our own devices to gain inspiration and motivation. In this moment, for me, that fuel is in the form of the brand new remix from Count Ninjula, one of my favorite emerging DJs going hard in Hollywood, CA. Count Ninjula has been around the block, creating remixes and heavy electronic tracks for most of his adult life, classifying his own genre as “unreasonably hard” which is extremely fitting. In this crazily hyped up remix of the single “Sleepless” from Stockholm-based group Cazzette, Ninjula doesn’t hold back. He clearly sets up the track for an unbelievable break and drop that would be amazing in any sort of action sequence. Most of the song is mid tempo and pretty nice to cruise to, so I really like how he creates nice transitions and builds to turn it up for the main, driving element of the track. He makes sure to keep the emotional vocals intact from the original track, while also chopping them up when necessary to create some juxtaposition. This is definitely one of my new favorite underground electronic tracks to have surfaced out of Hollywood, so big ups to Count Ninjula for keeping to his guns and putting out all of the unreasonably hard sounds he has to offer.
