San Francisco producer Marozi brings us his latest chill trap track, in the form of a sublime Ed Sheeran ‘Shape Of You’ remix. With an abundance of Ed Sheeran remixes currently circulating, it is refreshing to hear such an incredible rework.
Marozi takes the original, obviously a pop track, and manipulates the vocal stem beautifully, applying FX and pitch-shifting to create his own, fitting, trap style version. Coupled with superb orchestral and trap percussive elements this works excellently. The drop is equally well sculpted, with a catchy, strong, trap-esque variant on the original melody. The sound design here is first rate too and demonstrates Marozi’s production capabilities to the max.
Taking a song from one genre and transforming it into another, in a way that works brilliantly, is no easy task. Marozi, however, makes it sound easy and the finished product is highly listenable.
With a host of fantastic, prodigious tracks on his Soundcloud page, Marozi is a producer who is clearly on point right now. You might want to head straight over there when you’ve heard this and see what else he has to offer. We were certainly not disappointed.
We’re excited to see what the future brings for the Californian, as he continues to conquer in the trap, dubstep, future bass and experimental EDM genres.
The original ‘Shape Of You’, released in January this year, was one of the most successful records of all time. It reached No.1 in 30 different countries. and is of course featured on Sheeran’s 3rd studio album.
