We’ve already heard lots of good things come out of Ultra Singapore since last weekend, with Marshmello unveiling new material while deadmau5’s full set surfaced for fans who missed out on the action. During his performance at the massive festival, Jauz opted to test out a new future bass rework of indietronica band Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead,” and thanks to a new live rip we have our first preview of the remix.
Jauz opens his track with a twinkling synth melody layered over a plodding bassline while the vocal hooks from Passion Pit’s original are pitched up over top. Following a brief build-up, he takes the song into future bass territory with a Marshmello-esque drop, complete with stuttering chords, 8-bit synth leads and half time trap beats.
The Shark themed producer delivers a solid update with his “Sleepyhead” rework, crafting a new arrangement around the original vocals for a fresh production. The synthpop sound of the song is well suited for the future bass direction he’s taken it in, and there’s plenty for dance music fans to appreciate with Jauz‘s latest remix.
