PROXIMITY DEBUTS A SMASH REMIX OF GAYLE’S ‘abcdefu’ BY 2022 GRAMMY AWARD NOMINEE NITTI GRITTI
Nitti Gritti’s astronomical explosion into superstardom shows no signs of stopping in 2022. The groundbreaking producer has remixed one of 2021’s most popular records, ‘abcdefu’ by GAYLE, and created a melodic masterpiece. ‘abcdefu’ topped the Billboard 200 charts last year and has amassed over 320 million streams on Spotify alone in a matter of months. Nitti teamed up with prestigious dance music tastemaker Proximity to premiere this remix, the first time the two have connected since early 2021 when they released Nitti’s widely popular originals “Where I Belong” and “Matrix”.
Nitti kicked off his remix with GAYLE’s intoxicating voice over a simple guitar riff from the original melody. It transforms into an infectious pop-house production with a bouncy bassline, before exploding into a staple Nitti future-bass drop like those that have brought him so much success over the years.
On discovering GAYLE, Nitti shared,
“Funny enough, I actually discovered GAYLE through Tik Tok and was instantly hooked.”
With releases being pumped out regularly to meet TikToks non-stop demand, we wanted to know why Nitti chose this song to remix. He stated,
“I just knew I could make a perfect future bass remix to ‘abcdefu’ and was immediately inspired once I heard it. Actually made it in 2 hours before a show on tour.”
The combination of four-on-the-floor and future bass in a single track is something you won’t hear very often, and when combined with GAYLE’s vocals you’re left with one of the best remixes in recent memory.
We have our fingers crossed Nitti will be dropping this remix during his set in Nashville (GAYLE’s local scene) in March, opening up for DJ Diesel (a.k.a. Shaq!). Be sure to grab your tickets from BLNK CNVS Presents here. It’s safe to say the crowd would go CRAZY for this remix.
