Release date: April 22nd, 2014
Catalog number: GW020
Becoming famous is something that crosses everyones mind at one time in their lives. Being the center of attention, everyone knows who you are, the beautiful people, its intriguing. With that being said Gold Whistle is proud to present to you “Famous”, a brand new single from Zap! Pow! Die! of Brooklyn, NY. You may be familiar w/ his other endeavors The Death Set or NineLives The Cat. But here Zap! Pow! Die! is the Grindhouse sound of the future & “Famous” is the soundtrack to that lifestyle.
Johnny Nelson & Telli (Ninja Sonik) provide us with a catchy hook and verses on this bassy tune stating that after a long night “baby i’ll make you famous”. From the high horn stab to the emotional organ chords “Famous” is the kind of track you’ll find a way to play. Buzz Trillington provides us with his signature twerk-style remix fully equipped w/ a gnarly sub-bassline trap breakdown on the 2nd verse. Cobra Krames’ remix is a slowed & throwed trap banger w/ tingly hi-hats, bubbling melodies & screwed out vocals. Mighty Mark & TT The Artist re-flip “Famous” into a B-More club response to the original w/ TT remarking “you can call me baby, if you can make me famous”! Thee Mike B’s Analog-Techno remix is the perfect after-hours banger for when it all kicks in, & truly rounds off the feel for this mega-single!
“It’s about not being famous and also being famous and wanting to be famous and not wanting to be famous and fuck famous and love famous … ZAP! POW! DIE!”
