One of the best parts of 2013 has been seeing the Zouk Bass virus grow on a global scale. Since Buraka Som Sistema’s now legendary Boiler Room performance, our mailbox has been flooding with all sorts of beats from producers who were inspired by this tropical and sensual rhythm, giving us more than enough reason to believe this mutating ghetto bass scene is in great health. One of the producers who recently caught our attention was Chris Val, a French producer living in Amsterdam who created an amazing Zouk Bass remix of Ciara and Nicki Minaj’s brand new single I’m Out, which has been playing nonstop at our office ever since.
If you still have any doubts as to the vitality of this young music genre, then hit play below and watch as the big bass, wicked synths and looped vocals make all your questions disappear. Also, don’t forget to check out the producer’s Soundcloud page for more bass-heavy jams.
