As with most producers, Slaptop remains enigmatic, revealing only that his hometown is somewhere along the beaches of the Northern California Coast and that he’s currently based in San Francisco. The musician, producer, and DJ has released seven original singles, but here we are pleased to premiere his official remix of Bob Moses’s “Tearing Me Up.”
“I saw Bob Moses play at Burning Man this year right as the sun was rising over the desert. It was one of my favorite shows I have ever seen,” Slaptop tells us. “For my remix, I tried to add some energy and some of my house influence to the original while hopefully maintaining some of the vibes that make it so good to begin with.”
Released earlier this year by duo Bob Moses, “Tearing Me Up” maintains a steady bass line and subtle percussion that make listeners nod their heads. Slaptop took the pair’s melodic track and brought in new dimensions that elevates the head nodding to dancing. This Friday, watch out for the remix’s inclusion on Fifa’s Goal of the Week video—a weekly feature for which Slaptop also acts as a audio curator.
