This week I stumbled upon an insanely awesome revamp of old-school fan favorite: The Next Episode (Remix) – Mimosa. With artists constantly releasing new tracks and remixes daily trying to bring something "new" to the scene, I forgot how satisfying it is to find a mix that is so good and authentic you play it on repeat for basically the whole day. This tune takes it's listeners on a dirty bass journey back in the day to where Snoop Dogg ruled our worlds. Mimosa really has a way of capturing its audience with his out of control trap beats and perfect complementation of sound clips. He is a mix master, and regardless of how much he has been hated on lately, this dude has got talent, and has brought a completely different type of sound to the scene.
Avid followers who are familiar with trill god Tigran Mimosa, can enjoy this clip of the track below or listen to the artist’s bass genius compilation known as his September Mix 2011 (the mixtape the tune is showcased in).[embed]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80OjnE_7T30[/embed]
Blissfully unconcerned with a world obsessed with categorization as a means of definition, MiM0SA crafts music for its own sake, defying expectations with genre bending soundscapes. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area and currently residing in Los Angeles, MiM0SA began producing at the tender age of 17. Blessed with an abundance of talent and an ear for sonic experimentation, this fan-favorite has quickly developed a name for himself as one of the West Coast’s top exports. And the word is spreading fast.
In just a few short years he’s shared the stage with standard-bearers like Benga, Skream, Rusko, Datsik, Glitch Mob, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar and Flying Lotus. He’s also played festivals and shows across North America, including Coachella, Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man, Decibel Festival, and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. To say that MiM0SA is on the rise is to miss the mark. Rather, MiM0SA has arrived. This past March found him headlining his first tour, as he criss-crossed the U.S., selling out major venues like Higher Ground (Burlington, VT), the Paradise (Boston, MA), and the Gothic Theater (Denver, CO). Not to mention stellar debut performances at legendary venues such as NYC’s Irving Plaza and The Fillmore in San Francisco. The words tireless and prolific don’t quite do MiM0SA justice. In one weekend he headlined Lightning in a Bottle, blasted over to Summer Camp, and finished off the weekend with a blistering performance Detroit Movement Fest.
Although this remix has never been officially released publicly, I had to share this 3:00 minutes of pure genius with the world. I hope you all enjoy this track as much as I did and in the words of Mimosa...
