Whether it’s his DJ sets, mixtapes or productions, Madeaux no doubt does a great job when he’s working with vocals, and this ScHoolboy Q remix is no different. Not to say that he can’t kill his own original instrumental compositions – his forthcoming album Love The Machine sounds dope too – but Madeaux really taps into something extra with vocals in place.  “Drive Slow,” his installment for the DAD mix series, was also dope in this regard and showed the Boston-based producer flexing his R&B and future bass muscles as he dropped originals, remixes, and a wide collection alike.  Now this dope ScHoolboy remix has less of the producer’s previously ethereal soundscapes and lush synths, but more of a straight-up tribal tech house craze.  Though it would have been a big track without the vocals, the addition of ScHoolboy’s gangsta rap flow really aids the track and makes it even more accessible.  This is a track you’d might hear this festival season as Madeaux taps into some of the G house vibe currently bubblin’ in the underground and could make a dancefloor go wild.
