Shid Latta - "High"

Shid Latta presents his latest single, "High"

Shid Latta's "High" is a multi-layerd production, drawing on Hippie Sabotage's remix of "Habits (Stay High)" by Tove Lo for the main meat and potatoes of the beat on this track. Tove Lo's original track is a poignant reflection on "habits" or drug and alcohol abuse rather, as a way to deal with emotional stress. The music video is fantastic as well. Hippie Sabotage, the latest Pandora Radio darling (if you listen to Pandora for anything except metal), has created an excellent reinterpretation of Tove Lo's track with a down-tempo, chill wave, even trap-esque spin for his remix. Shid Latta takes all this wonderfulness and uses it as his backing band for "High." Shid Latta takes the same themes of Tove Lo's track and delivers it in his own flows. It's a much more aggressive approach than either Tove Lo's or Hippie Sabotage's interpretation of this theme, but it works because it's different and genuine to who Shid Latta is as an artist.
