Imaabs has aired out a dembow rework edition of his thumping, industrial club track “White Noise,” originally off Trax Couture’s World Series Vol. 2 compilation. In this edit, he muscles in some picks from a reggaeton sample bank for an effective rework with retouches that are as sparse as they are relentless; a chance to continue on experimentations with mixing finely-sliced samples of hip-hop and reggaeton with hard-edged elements from house and techno.
