ThatGuyPaul, a New Orleans native DJ/Producer, dropped his remix of Desiigner’s XXL Freshman Freestyle “Timmy Turner” this past Wednesday. ThatGuyPaul takes the eerie lyrics of Desiigner and adds his own futuristic sounding style to it. A smooth bassline and sharp high hats accompany the lyrics in the beginning of the song. As it progresses, an ever so quiet synth creeps in under the lyrics. The synth, along with ThatGuyPaul’s occasional hard hitting bass wobbles, bring the song to its main point: the drop. Packed with future synths and leads, this drop adds a different character to the song. ThatGuyPaul took the dark, voodoo sounding lyrics and created something lighter and happier. The futuristic synth chords create the canvas while the accompanying sporadic plucks and Desiigner’s voice help paint the full picture. An array of snares, claps, and even the Desiigner sampled snaps in the drop add the human element to this song giving it that extra flare.
ThatGuyPaul is still in the early stages of his music career, but we believe it will be filled with more amazing songs and great opportunities. The future looks bright for ThatGuy, so be on the lookout for his next projects as well.
