What constitutes a remix? A slight tweak of an original component? A meager addition of a chord here and there? In a day and age when streaming platforms are constantly activating stringent copyright mandates against remixes, producers have found themselves in a position where they need to step outside their comfort zones and conjure up something genuinely original. Such is the case with Loosid, who just unveiled his official remix of San Holo's smash hit "Light" in one of the most unique reworkings of early 2017.

Out now on San Holo's own bitbird imprint, Loosid's breathtaking and genre-shattering rendition brilliantly toes the line between gritty and groovy, wholly encapsulating the art of the modern remix. Intertwining the ethereal ambiance of the original with gritty trap wobbles and fluttering arpeggios, Loosid completely deconstructs "Light" to deliver something truly his own.
To no surprise, the mysterious bass producer has become a hot commodity in the electronic realm, releasing official remixes for The Chainsmokers ("Roses") and Matoma ("False Alarm") among others. His sound has an alluring mystique to it – it is easily digestible while also profound and thought-provoking due to its dreamy nature. Check out his "Light" remix now, and watch out for Loosid on his relentless pursuit to stardom as he bulldozes every genre boundary in his way.
