The Future House train keeps on rollin’ – and that’s fine with me. A genre that seems to have materialized out of nowhere over the past couple years, thanks to guys like Oliver Heldens and Tchami, it’s interesting to see who’s getting in the game and who’s not. For example, I saw Sander Kleinenberg kill it at CRSSD Festival two weekends ago and a majority of the music he was spinning fell into the Future House category (including some of his new music). I’ve come to know Kleinenberg as someone who hangs around the House and Tech-House realm but it was refreshing to hear Future House when a lot of CRSSD was some sort of Deep House variation. Another example of a producer throwing her hat in the ring with Future House is the beautiful Genisis (formerly Stiletto).
Today Genisis released her bootleg remix of the popular track “1,2 Step” by Ciara featuring Missy Elliott. Seeing this appear on my SoundCloud feed, I was curious was sort of take Genisis would be going for on her version. Sure enough the track is a bangin’ Future House bomb with a fat bass line and melodic synth layers. The lyrics, while the main course of the original R&B/Hip-Hop track, are just a side dish in Genisis’ remix, but I’m okay with that given the high quality of the production.
Genisis was so kind as to release this one for free download so if you’re looking to rock a crowd with a familiar vocal hook and a slammin’ beat, look no further. Check out some of Genisis’ other work on her SoundCloud page and show some love if you like what you hear!
