Jacuzzi, a new 18-year-old producer out of Honolulu, Hawaii, has come through with a huge remix of Santigold’s “Disparate Youth.” As a classically trained pianist, he has been honing in his production skills over the past seven years with intricate compositions in mind. Even with his brief career thus far, it’s clear that he has garnered the attention of top players in the industry as he has been consistently called in for listening sessions at Kanye West’s Yeezus studio in Hawaii – Avex Studios – for rappers like Pusha T. In his “Disparate Youth” remix, Jacuzzi manifests his inventive hip-hop sound while drawing from his classical influences for fresh style. Check out the remix as well as his collaboration with Mr. Carmack, “Trigger,” after the jump.
