Bisco Smith Vibrations Remixed

After Bisco Smith's newest album, The Broadcast, arrived with a bang, he has taken his single, "Vibrations" to the next level with its revamped remix. Producer Scott Thorough was brought in for this remix to provide a different angle for the edgy single.

A Brooklyn native, Thorough is a member of the Nuclear Family and has produced remixes for Embedded Music and Def Jux artists Baje One, Cool Calm Pete, Core Rhythm, and more, along with his frequent collaborations with Bisco. "Scott has remixed a bunch of tunes for me in the past and always comes with the dark, heavy, hard-hitting material," says Bisco. "I am a fan of dubstep, drum and bass, and heavy electronic tunes and I think Scott always incorporates those elements in what he sends my way."

The echoed beginning of "We gonna get you out of here," followed by a moment of dead air, erases all pretense for the remix, opening up the listener to the new possibilities of Scott Thorough's imaginings. Warped sounds, pounding drums, and a descending synthesizer bass line continuously push the music forward, but in a different way than the original single its eerie setup, and the feel it provides Bisco's lyrics, fill the remix with a seemingly slowed, yet driving power. Coming to an end, the remix takes yet another turn, as Bisco directs the drum kick, bass line, and snare hit with his intense, syncopated lyrics. Then, coming full circle, the remix closes the same way it began an echoing "We gonna get you out of here" permeates the speakers, reinforcing the song's theme of musical escape as Bisco's fading vocals wander off, pulling the listener's thoughts with them. The most musically diverse effort of Bisco's career, The Broadcast pushes the boundaries of what hip-hop can be, and with the album's remixes, and the efforts of Scott Thorough, "Vibrations" continues to challenge the hip-hop status quo. Bisco Smith's The Broadcast is currently available via all digital retailers.
