Just Blaze & Baauer ft. Jay Z – “Higher (Modern Machines Remix)”
Modern Machines have been on the rise over the past year, with a string of remixes of 2013’s biggest dance tracks carving out a unique sonic identity for the New York DJ/production duo. This time, the pair is showcasing their house chops by taking on “Higher,” Just Blaze and Baauer’s high-profile collaboration with Jay-Z.
Modern Machines takes Just Blaze and Baauer’s trap opus and flips it on its head, priming it for festival season with a big room polish replete with hulking bass and massive soundscapes. Managing to be both sassy and aggressive at the same time, the remix refreshingly splits the difference between an old-school rave mentality and present-day EDM aesthetics.
