Bass | Crankdat Shares Impressive Remix Of Matoma & MAGIC!’s Single “Girl At Coachella”

Posted by on June 2, 2017

Crankdat has been in ‘beast mode’ for about a year and a half now, delivering one great remix after the next. His latest is an official remix for none other than Matoma who has been crushing the Spotify game with his sun-kissed singles like “Girl At Coachella” with MAGIC! and featuring D.R.A.M. This seems to be the last remix Crankdat is putting out before his debut original solo single which everyone in the dance music community has been patiently waiting for. There’s a lot of hype around this kid, but each time he puts out a new track he seems to justify it and then some. He dishes out two styles in his “Girl At Coachella” remix, delivering a bass-fueled drop to lead things off before giving fans a melodic second drop to cap it all off. Well done Mr. Crankdat. Stay tuned for more from this 20-year-old. He’s crushing the game and is only getting started.

This is the second big tune from this guy SEMLR that I have just absolutely loved. He took the original and added a completely different tropical vibe with a melody that just gets me vibing. Keep an eye/ear out for this artist, I think we’ll be seeing alot more of his name in the future.
