Bazzi was already a pretty big deal when we first picked up on the R&B soul and hip hop artist earlier this year, but just as we expected, we’re seeing the artist’s name a whole lot more lately. It seems, some of our favorite electronic producers have fallen for his music, too. Remixes of Bazzi tracks are on the rise, and as it turns out, his irresistible songs lend themselves well to dexterous re-works. Just listen to Electric Mantis’ captivating take on Bazzi’s Mine, a celestial twinkling, ethereal flickering beauty of a remix. The producer from Alaska takes my breath away with his intoxicating chord progressions and emphatic rumbling bass on the brilliant future trap and ambient bass edit. Stream/download the track, here.

French producer Petit Biscuit released one of the year’s best electronic albums earlier this year. Our patience was duly rewarded when Presence arrived. One of my favorite tracks off the full length happens to feature Australian synth faves Panama, too. Petit Biscuit has since unveiled a Waterfall remixes EP, featuring an impressive array of gifted producers, including Karma Kid, Fono, Katuchat, Ferdinand Weber, Tim Legend, and HWLS, as well as Alaskan sensation Electric Mantis. It’s the latter’s fresh and unique edit that we’re diving into tonight. Instead of a smooth cascade, this Waterfall is a whimsically lurching, bass rumbling, ear thrilling frolic. It’s a dynamic and elaborate dubstep excursion on which Electric Mantis’ sonic genius is thoroughly exhibited. Grab the Waterfall remixes EP from iTunes, here.

Brooklyn’s Mothica turns in bewitching vocals on the synth swiveling, vibrant blazing trap and melodic bass ballad.

If lying is loving than I guess you love me,” Mothica sings on the song. Yet, I find it impossible to lie about my affection for Electric Mantis’ new masterpiece. You can download/stream Lying & Loving via major outlets, here.

Ethereal is one of those more mysterious tunes dropped into my inbox, with no information to go along with it, but I was able to figure out that this mysterious Breathing Room is a mashup extraordinaire based out in Texas. On Ethereal, he skillfully fits together Electric Mantis’ “Flip and Flop, Drips and Drops”, SoySauce’s “Sushi Park”, Drake’s “Over”, Dorrough’s “After Party”, Travi$ Scott’s “Upper Echelon (feat. T.I. & 2 Chainz)”, and even Beyonce’s “Party (feat. Kanye and André 3000)” to form one big mosaic of riveting sound, consisting of grimy hip hop and ethereal EDM. Kind of crazy, eh?
