RL Grime‘s Nova saw the trap maestro easily surpassing the sophomore slump and further cementing his stance in the world outside basic electronica with cutting-edge sound design and allstar collaborators that included the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, Torey Lanez, and beyond. The LP was well received by a wide spread of fans, quickly climbing to the top of multiple charts after its official release. Nova has since inspired a good deal of interpretations from other artists, eleven of which were selected by RL Grime and his team to appear on the first official remix compilation.
A notable addition to the group is k?d, who’s become a power player in recent years since his break in to the dance music scene. He provided quite a wild take on “Rainer,” peppering the original with ricocheting synthesizers and adding his unique sound design into the mix for a sinister remake. Up-and-coming talent 1788-L also contributed a remix to the pot, transforming “Era” into chaotic, dubstep piece designed to break necks on the dancefloor.
