Legendary French beatmaker 20syl continues to bring his soulful upbeat style to the table with his latest pulsating remix of Odesza’s It’s Only featuring vocals from Zyra. Flipping up the original with his signature glitchy drops and layered drums, the song takes on a whole new level of energy.
It’s refreshing to see a veteran of the likes of 20syl continue to blend characterstics of his turntabilist skills with the sheer potential creativity modern electronic beats offer. As a member of the DJ collective C2C, citing a rich history of jazz inspired neo-soul French rap, 20syl never ceases to create his own unique sound with his various projects.
If you’re feeling the scratchy beats and bass drops, you’ll be sure to vibe to his other takes on modern hip-hop Future Music like Schoolboy Q’s ‘The Purge / Rapfix Cyper’, Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Sing that shit’ and one of our favourite bangers, ‘Ongoing thing feat. Oddisee’. It just goes to show that whatever this artist chooses to collaborate on he does with serious talent.
