Newly Nulabee

26 Jan

I am anti-Disney. I don’t understand people who insist on watching Disney movies repeatedly as grown adults, and never has that craze been so popular than with this Frozen nonsense. I might watch Mulan sometimes, but the only reason will be because there is a child in the room or because I am playing a Mulan drinking game. Something I can’t get enough of, though: Pogo. I only knew him as the Disney remix dude until I began working at my college radio station, then I realized he remixes much more than just Disney movies. The soft vocal cuts are like cotton in your ears, and the sounds he pulls together are so tender that everything he makes I just want to cradle in my arms. A new French artist, Nulabee, takes on the same idea, though does not aim to be so saccharine.

There is a certain weight in all three of Nulabee’s newest tracks. I’ve noticed a pattern where most of the lines end on a lower note than they began; this is apparent in the Holly Drummond remix, which also features somber vocals. Nulabee’s “Fade” is a great reinvention, with more layers than the original. Nulabee is adept at taking what he needs, highlighting it, and renewing it for his own gain. The samples of Kimbra’s “Settle Down” prove this point in “Down with Me.” Samples are strung together with a quick and coherent bassline in “Glitter,” though I can’t place their origin. That doesn’t make it any less his own, though, weaving his own signature into the bits that he’s re-appropriated.
