Premiere: ShockOne rolls out a smooth flip of Jamie xx's Good Times
Elegant in its simplicity, and just in time for his huge City Lock tour kicking off this week.
2016 is shaping up to be a large one for Perth's ShockOne. After a somewhat quiet past 12 months, he's returned in a huge way this year, unleashing a bombastic new single in City Lock feat. Ragga Twins and announcing a huge Australian tour that just so happens to kick off this weekend. Keen Perth punters may have seen him hijacking a few sneaky sets around the clubs here and there, and it's safe to say Karl Thomas is warming up for a hot one over the next couple of weeks (check those dates down the bottom, along with a just-announced appearance at Dillon Francis' upcoming Belvoir Amphitheatre show in WA).
Today we're stoked to premiere something a little less hectic than City Lock - a very chill, supremely awesome dab back into Thomas' drum'n'bass roots with a take on Jamie xx's feel good hit of the summer, Good Times feat. Popcaan. It does nothing to dampen the fun mood of the original, giving it a little bump in energy that one feels is gonna hit some sweet spots over those coming tour dates. Between this and fellow West Aussie DNGRFLD's Kiiara re-do last week, are we becoming drum'n'bass converts? When the tunes are this fun, we don't really care what genre it's coming from:
