Maroon 5 – Girls Like You (ØBANA Remix)

California based ØBANA is a unique artist to say the least. Coining his own genre named ‘Trapical’, this has allowed him to create a sound which is a beautiful blend of hyped up trap and chilled out tropical bass sounds and has managed to capture himself an audience. Formally known as Loventures (LVNTRS), he has reinvented himself and his sound and has cranked out a string of remixes for artists such as Mike PosnerCalvin Harris and Sia to name a few.

Adding another remix to his list, ØBANA – who’s real name is Stephen Obana – has decided to change up the pop world again with the massive Maroon 5 pop hit ‘Girls Like You’ and has put his own ‘Trapical’ spin on it. Going for an uplifting vibe with this remix, Stephen has done exactly that and more. Starting off the track with massive tropical vibes that shine through on the light and euphoric synths, it then goes into a trap-inspired drop that is beautifully blended with a tropical future bass sound which shows off the self-coined ‘trapical’ genre perfectly.

ØBANA’s talents are showcased expertly in this remix and if this is anything to go by, this shining artist is about to become a massive hit. Listen to his ‘Girls Like You’ remix below!
