PREMIERE: The Minimalist sounds of #FrankOcean’s “White Ferrari” lead @Vastamusic’s inspired and careful remix

FRANK OCEAN, “White Ferrari” (Vasta remix)

I wouldn’t be writing about a remix of a song by Frank Ocean – especially one from his smash Blonde album – whose music now courts emotional debates and undying loyalty, unless I thought fans would dig it.  A few weeks after we got to know Miami-based producer/remixer Vasta through a slick reinterpretation of T-Pain’s “I’m Sprung” comes this valiant, careful retooling of “White Ferrari”.  What was important to retain was the minimalist ambiance of the original, while of course adding to it.  Like too much salt will ruin an entire pot of broth, too much bass or overburdening this deep house remix with more synths could have played havoc here.  But instead this mix is both chilled out and taut, with slight clever synths and bass that knows when it needs to stand up and be counted.  Frank Ocean fans will love hearing this in a club setting as his music would otherwise be disconnected from that scene.  Vasta is in a reinvention process, and has much more to come in the next few months including collaborations with – wait for it – Todd Terry and Armand van Helden 😀 Download “White Ferrari” for free at the link above.
