STRYTLLR Just Dropped His G-Eazy Bootleg For The Graduates of 2016

Artists often follow the unwritten rules of success established by those who have come before them, especially early in their careers. James Ford, the 23-year-old Orange County native, better known by his stage name STRYTLLR, does just the opposite in his remix of “Far Alone,” from G-Eazy’s 2015 album When It’s Dark Out.

The track feels instantly faster than the original. After one initial drop, it keeps a consistent rhythm and a relatively moderate bass line. The only indication of any hiatus in tempo is the introduction of scratching synths just before the second verse. In Trap and Future Bass, listeners generally expect at least two drops in every track. The peaks and valleys allow for greater emotional build-up and listener connection. Ford instead chooses to continually add sonic elements, saving his heaviest bass hits for a spacey finale. The original track’s pace feels more natural in combination with G-Eazy’s lyrics, but STRYTLLR’s remix is a unique exploration outside of EDM tradition.
