Hervé & Zebra Katz - Tear The House Up (Faustix Remix)

Faustix turns up the volume on his label mates Zebra Katz,and UK native Hervé's groovy track, "Tear The House Up". This slowed down, hyped up version of the original Mad Decent track is a trap club banger. Zebra Katz is the capstone creation of 25 year old New York multidisciplinary artist Ojay Morgan. Purportedly inspired by Nina Simone, Andre 3000, Missy Elliot, James Blake, and Lauryn Hill, Morgan has cultivated a signature and unique presence all his own. Zebra Katz brings a slo-mo dark delivery to his rhymes, which are typically set over a minimal, unencumbered beat. His effortless flow over equally smooth, bouncing beats reflect his ability to take these sticky influences and mold an entirely new style out of them. Hervé is a DJ/producer from the UK. His reputation for bass-oriented, yet varied styles of music in his live sets is credited by his production history. In 2008 his, along with The Count and Sinden's, track "Beeper" reached number 1 on the UK Dance Chart. In 2010, Hervé collaborated with Fatboy Slim to produce the acid house song "Machines Can Do the Work". Then earlier this year he released "Power of Bass" with Armand Van Helden. If you woke up and it turned up the past few years were a dream, then decided to sit in front of your computer and find this article by googling Faustix, you would find nothing. Not only because this article wasn't written until this past Wednesday (in 2014), but because no one had written anything about Faustix at all at that point. In a couple of years the the Copenhagen native has released titles on Dim Mak, Epic and Mad Decent Records and has remixed the likes of Yuna, Skylar Grey, and Ciara, just to name a few. It'll be interesting to see what he can do with a few more years.
