If you’re not familiar with Austin, TX native, Psymbionic, now is a good chance to get to know his music. Having already played many nationally recognized festivals like Wakarusa, Nocturnal, and SXSW, Psymbionic is preparing for a mid-June West Coast festival run that will take him from Washington to California. As a thank-you to his growing fan base Psymbionic has released “Ride With Me ((VIP Remix))”, a reworking of the title track from his recently released EP of the same name.
This is a complete re-envisioning of the original release with an extra emphasis placed on minimal glitch movements. While there are still sections of the song that are focused around the largely overused “talking-robot-synth” that Skrillex has popularized, Psymbionic quite elegantly knows how to transfer modes from aggressive dubstep to hood-rich glitch resulting in a track that isn’t too abrasive. Even with elements of dubstep and glitch present, the track is successful at creating a relaxing atmosphere based off of two “frantic” styles of EDM.
