Lyon, FR based tropical dance DJ/producer & global bass alchemist, Douster, releases a FREE remix EP of Mad Rad’s The Youth Die Young. Tied closely to Zizek Records after spending 2 years in Buenos Aries, Douster takes cues from his love of hardstyle, house, bass, cumbia, dancehall, & rap to transform club music into a sonic gumbo. Douster has put out remixes for Rusko, Gucci Mane, Toddla T, & released singles with Diplo, Savage Skulls, & Chilean producers Zonora Point. Now, he puts his spin on the electronic hip hop rumble of Seattle’s Mad Rad. The remixes see Douster veering into future Chicago house, 1/2 time speed merengue/half space juke, Miami acid bass house, & ambient 808 machine funk. The Douster + Mad Rad combination is a mix you can sink your ears into.
Mad Rad is a Seattle based group that has shaken up west coast hip hop with their combination of electronic focused dance music & frenzied live show. The Youth Die Young is their 2nd full length album, & the band has been supporting it hard by relentlessly touring & playing the Northwest’s largest festivals. Douster got to know Mad Rad’s music after playing a show with the group’s DJ, Darwin in 2009. They exchanged music over the next couple years, chopped it up over Flocka’s new mix tapes, & established a like-minded musical rapport. Douster touched down in Seattle earlier this year for a show, & when he heard tracks off the new record first hand in the studio, it became obvious remixes needed to happen.
