Posted by jewcebox on August 18, 2015
Mad Decent is one of dance music’s most recognizable brands, and when an artist earns a release on the label, they officially have the stamp of approval from one of the most influential individuals in dance music – Diplo. 4B, a 22-year-old-producer out of New Jersey, is one of the imprint’s youngest and brightest talents on the rise and is a name fans of Mad Decent should keep their eyes on. His sound is characterized as an aggressive form of Jersey club that is perfect for the festival environment, and his collaboration history includes names like Flosstradamus, Mercer, and more, to name a few.
Having already played EDC NY and EDC Las Vegas – where Diplo Emceed the entire performance and pulled the largest crowd the 7Up Stage had seen all weekend, 4B will add Nocturnal Wonderland and Life Is Beautiful to his resume before the year rounds out the year. To give you a sense of 4B’s festival-ready sound, we’ve decided to give our top 5 track’s from the Mad Decent star to make sure everyone knows who this kid is as he continues to collaborate with some of dance music’s biggest stars.
Fetty Wap – My Way (Flosstradamus x 4B Remix)
Quite possibly his biggest collaboration and hardest track to date, 4B’s remix of “My Way” with Flosstradamus is a merciless trap monster. With a roaring scrape lead taking hold at the drop, its one of those tracks that you throw your body every which way when you hear it.
4B – Drop It Again
Perfect for the main stages and padded with a jungle tinge, “Drop It Again” is the type of track you drop when you have the crowd’s energy sky high and you want to take it to the next level.
4B & Gianni Marino – Hands Up
One of the best examples of 4B’s aggressive, jersey club sound, “Hands Up” has enough bounce to get any butt bouncing and twerking.
Tremor (4B & Stevie G Bootleg)
During his EDC NY set, the blaring synths of “Tremor” had everyone in the crowd yelling the notorious melody. With synths interspersed amongst the throbbing bass and kicks, this remix is the best jersey club remix of “Tremor” out there and 4B is to thank for it.
4B & Mercer – Bounce
Finally, we get to his most recent single that perfect exhibits 4B’s versatility. With Mercer as his collaborator, the two producers use chaotic vocal chops and a booming bass to create a track that sends shockwaves through the crowd.
