Music, Original MixAlli LindseyComment

Despite contemporary rap music being frequently criticized by old-heads for not channeling Tupac and Biggie, today’s take on hip-hop actually works as a curtain call for collaboration and creative restoration. Our favorite little blue booger, Snugs, composed of two multi-talented musicians who manipulate organic electronic production, have returned with their novel remix of Lil Skies’ “Nowadays.” Capitalizing on Lil Skies’ melodramatic flow, and rolling hip-hop cadence, Snugs gives “Nowadays” a vibrant treatment that redefines the mantra of the original piece. Using elements of spacious, radiating synth, the duo repaints the frame of “Nowadays” with pastel colors while lightning strikes between each note. A stellar balance of indie-electronic, and modern-urban flow, this flip is an interstellar rework that bumps with ease. Snugs’ relentless devotion to their craft shines with each release, fossilizing them as one of the most exciting, and cozy acts of the year. Stay tuned for more from our cute little friend, Snugs.
