Katy Perry‘s Witness has already undoubtedly been one of the most polarizing records of 2017, scoring Perry her third Billboard number one album, though met by mixed reviews across the board. Witness rolled out behind singles with Migos, Skip Marley, and Nicki Minaj, with Duke Dumont and Promnite hopping on production duties for the album’s inescapable Nicki feature, “Swish Swish.” Now, Promnite and Dumont’s original composition is being taken on by Valentino Khan, who’s shows off his own house-leaning sensibilities on his official remix of “Swish Swish.”No stranger to pop production, having previously produced work with T.I., Bruno Mars and others, Khan plays upon his signature hunker-down-low brand of club-primed house music, complementing Perry’s ubiquitous summer single with a bouncy setlist igniter. Weaving Minaj’s bars and Perry’s pitched down hook into a punching, metallic break, the “Slam Dunk” producer posts up with an aggressive new rework, complete with a trap-polished half-time break.Read More:Diplo and Katy Perry are working on bringing ‘American Idol’ back to TVValentino Khan releases dirty house single ‘Pump’ via Mad Decent
After being catapulted into the limelight by Noisia in January with his single “1234,” French producer RedPill is back with another intense single.His latest creative output, “Ground Shaka,” further cements his status as one of the hottest prospects in Drum & Bass. The single, much like his previous Invisible release, is a furious hurricane of powerful sonic elements. The single starts off on an eerie note, which is echoed throughout the beautifully irrational single. The dark mood is further fortified by the growling bass line and flawless drums, before the roaring beat drop drowns the listener in a tsunami of pure musical madness. Overall, “Ground Shaka” is another great singl, which substantiates RedPill’s production talent.Read More:Porter Robinson debuts new live edit of ‘Shelter’ Video Skrillex plays a surprise set at Coachella on Saturday night Uber breaks banks at Coachella
