Only Big Voyage Can Make You Feel

At a certain point, the current R&B sampling trend in bass music will become pastiche, but until then, I’ll eat up every second of it. Brooklyn’s own Elias Ravin aka Big Voyage takes sample culture to an extreme, crafting hectic patchworks of R&B, hip hop, jazz and dance tropes that succeed in cohesion more often than not not. Ravin’s latest effort, “Only”, infuses Mariah Carey’s “All My Life” with live sax and clicking percussion and willfully mutates from clattering club music to lethargic boom bap over the course of five and a half minutes. Ravin let the song loose to celebrate his birthday so show him love in the comments.
