PREMIERE: JACK LABOZ REMIX

Written by: roshux
Jack Laboz is bringing us heat this week with a killer remix of “Lovin’ U,” by LOKI featuring AVEDO, that showcases how powerful stepping out of your comfort zone as a producer can be. There’s a total of three live instruments being played on top of the production of the track, all by different people. The use of real instruments on this really makes for something special; every detail you hear helps create a specific atmospheric sound that gives this remix a completely new vibe from the original. It’s a super fun track that shares real instrumental texture with electronic sounds, and you should definitely give it a listen! Below share and listen to Jack Laboz's remix of "Lovin' U"!
"I took the time, sat down and thought about my musicianship. How can it be improved? What would be a good starting point that would take my productions to new grounds? Actively trying to do everything in my control to further my music.
Suddenly it clicked. I had the idea to replace my most commonly used computer-based instruments that mimicked live performance, with real players-- ultimately forcing me out of my comfort zone and into a new way of thinking about music-making.
I quickly hit my Soundcloud feed for inspiration and found "Lovin' U" through a couple of mutual friends. I was so taken by the original that I messaged LOKI in that instant for Avedo's vocals to remix. Got into the studio a day after I got the parts, and recorded the bass guitar and my friend on the piano. A week later my other friend and I recorded his violin part in the closet of my studio apartment. Fast forward a month later and here it is! One of my favorite pieces thus far. A fun fusion of organic textures and electronically programmed sounds. Really excited to be sharing this with you people <3"
