Can't Escape AObeat's Magnetic Force

I can wholeheartedly say that 2014 is the year for AObeats. Don't get me wrong, the Moving Castle co-founder has released hits in the past, and if you don't believe me, listen to his remix of Ashanti's, "Happy". They all have these heavily synched and high pitched sounds, that can't help but get stuck in your head for what seems like months. Hailing from Massachusetts and currently residing in New York, AObeats takes inspiration from each location he's been. The ditties he's produced are influenced by  Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B, and Electronic music, and it is clearly visible and seriously enforced through his remix of Annabel Jone's, "Magnetic".

With slow chorded beginnings, AObeats transforms an originally soft spoken and eclectically synthed vocally charged single, into a glorious and infectious electronic track.
