Your EDM Premiere: Hear Levela’s Hotly Anticipated Upcoming Banger, ‘Bang Bang 2023’ that includes LaMeduza [RAM]


RAM and Levela resurrect the traditional observe from the 60s to show cool by no means goes out of favor.

The 1966 tune “Bang Bang (My Child Shot Me Down) written by Sonny Bono and sung by Cher, then coated by Nancy Sinatra (additionally in ’66), is so well-recognized in trendy music lore that it’s protected to say it’s an establishment. Apart from essentially the most recognizable model by Sinatra, the tune has been coated or remixed by so many musicians through the years that they’re not possible to listing and take up a full 5 pages on WhoSampled.com. Among the many most notable are Cher herself (with Jon Bon Jovi and Michael Bolton in 1987), Woman Gaga, The Raconteurs, Vanilla Fudge and Nancy’s solely barely extra well-known husband, Frank Sinatra. Now Levela and vocalist LeMeduza have joined the illustrious ranks of those that have remade this legendary observe, and the long-overdue D&B model of “Bang Bang” is about to drop this Friday, June twenty eighth.

The drum & bass rework of “Bang Bang,” as one would anticipate, is definitely essentially the most totally different in each model and substance from the unique as it will possibly get. With the Sonny and Cher model being largely folk-based and the Nancy Sinatra model being what we’d now name junkyard nation, there’s not a lot in D&B that may match both of these genres. That stated, Levela has taken a major pattern from Bono’s unique and woven it by the observe. It’s the haunting guitar riff created practically 60 years in the past that has made this observe such an establishment and the best way Levela makes use of it not simply as a pattern however as a information for the important thing and ambient tone of the observe makes it simply as visceral and ominous as the unique. Amidst all of the amens, switchbacks and heavy, sine wavey sub bass synths, the vibe of the unique tune isn’t misplaced and it’s nearly received a publish punk taste to it.

Talking of being true to the unique, LaMeduza’s vocals are what actually tie this observe collectively and seize the temper of this legendary tune so nicely. Not solely does she handle to seize the tone and timbre of Nancy Sinatra’s standard model, she could have truly surpassed it. We’re not simply speaking about high quality of apparatus or manufacturing right here, both: LaMeduza’s vocal ability and a focus to the drama of the observe has an authenticity that actually is unmatched. Levela will need to have recognized it was particular as nicely, as he provides ample house within the observe for the complete vocals, doing only a few cuts or fragment mixing of the vox until it was to echo it by the vox-less components.

The partnership between Levela and LaMeduza on “Bang Bang” makes for an outstanding collab on high of a surprisingly danceable resurrection of this greater than half century-old tune. It’s probably neither Sonny and Cher nor Nancy Sinatra (nor actually anybody, for that matter) may have ever pictured ravers doing finger weapons to this specific “banger,” however now that you concentrate on it, it’s truly excellent for a D&B tune. It simply wanted a grasp producer like Levela and a pitch-perfect vocalist like LaMeduza to do it justice. Cool is cool regardless of that the time interval of age, and “Bang Bang 2023” proves it.
