San Francisco based producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist Aabo, real name Aaron Bortz, has established a thriving reputation via original productions and covers. Earlier this year, his collaborative project with Lafa Taylor called FEEL, amassed an impressive measure of accolades from tastemakers such as NOISEY, Clash Magazine, and Mass Appeal and received remixes from StarRo (Soulection), Flamingosis, Roy Davis JR, Mumbai Science, Penthouse Penthouse, and more,on the full-length album.
Today, Aabo returns with up and coming vocalist Megan Gage on a cover of Drake’s “Child’s Play.” Completely reworking the original track, he creates an entirely new composition for the song featuring both electronic and organic instrumentation including 808, synths, and guitar. The vocal top-line has also been entirely rewritten to reflect a different perspective, only keeping the main chorus elements of the single in tact. If familiar with Drake’s version, Aabo and Gage’s flip of the single will prove a worthy counterpart to the chart-topping original.
If this is your first encounter with the stunning chops of Megan Gage, the singer/songwriter from San Jose, CA works heavily within her collective, Cashmir Collective, as well as some of the bay area’s most sought after talent including Mikos Da Gawd and Elujay.
