Although the world lost Mac Miller more than two years ago, his memory lives on in the music community through plentiful remixes, covers, and live edits from artists across the whole genre spectrum. Wobble masters and SubCarbon Records bosses Ganja White Night (GWN) have come to pay their respects to the rap icon by showing out with an eclectic mashup, Ganja White Night’s “Champagne” vs. Mac Millers’s “Blue World.”
Arriving as a beautiful homage to the late hip-hop legend, this bubbly tune was a tribute waiting to happen. Emanating the same energy with an eerily similar modulated synth, GWN’s Champagne” paints the perfect scene for Mac Millers’s “Blue World,” a fan-favorite off his posthumous album, Circles. Saving the 50s samples and adding background vocals around the late rapper’s melancholy verses, the mashup truly blends the two tracks seamlessly for a fresh, yet familiar sound. The tribute is dripping in nostalgia for Mac Miller and GWN fans alike, the tune is a perfect soundscape for the changing season as it begs for rinse after rinse.
The origin of Miller’s “Blue World” already had ties to the EDM community with production credits from Guy Lawrence (one-half of Disclosure, the UK duo behind the instant hit “Latch” with then-newcomer Sam Smith). As for Ganja White Night, it’s been an otherwise relatively quiet quarantine for the Belgian dub/bass duo, although a highly-anticipated collaboration with GRiZ is reportedly on the way..
