Alison Wonderland continues the future bass trend with her remix of Lido’s “Crazy”. Although future bass has mostly grown in the last couple of years, you might be surprised to hear that the style emerged as a microgenre around 2006. It was popularized in the UK, US, Japan, and Australia. Some future bass artists that may come to mind include Cashmere Cat, Flume, Lido, Louis the Child, ODESZA, and Alison Wonderland, of course. The industry decided the best way to describe the dissecting style was to use the word future. And what is futuristic about future bass? Possibly that the sounds could be from robots and other futuristic technology. Future bass uses a combination of synths, squeaks, arpeggio chords, and vocoders.
Alison Wonderland’s remix of “Crazy” starts with the original vocal sample that is featured throughout other tracks on Lido’s “Everything” album. She uses some of the original instrumentation, including notable synths. She adds a hidden new vocal sample, and voila, a future bass remix has been born.
