With You. is a collective represented by core members Dave “Switch” Taylor, Rick Trainor, and Daouda Leonard, who collectively bring over 20 years of experience in the industry. With You. is not bound by genre or medium, instead it creates new connections while referencing each of its core members’ legacy in underground culture.
With You.’s single “Ghost” featuring rapper Vince Staples hit the internet in full force last year, demonstrating the group’s collective talents. Now, the single is being officially released via Big Beat Records and comes paired with a ground-breaking interactive music video.
The visual takes viewers on a journey through an epic night of debauchery in LA. House party, champagne popping, pill popping, ensues as the viewer experiences Vince Staples’ perspective throughout the night. With You. remarks, “The official video for Ghost is a collaboration with the creative collective known asfounded by Yung Jake & Vince McKelvie. Directed by Vince McKelvie, the team created a music video that combines real world environment with digital Fx that show the complexities of drug usage and harkens back to classic videos like The Prodigy’s Smack My Bitch Up.”
Furthermore, Switch’s past and present projects collide with the release of Major Lazer’s powerful, dance-floor-ready remix of “Ghost.” Though he has gone on to pursue numerous alternative projects since his departure from Major Lazer, which he co-founded in 2008, Switch reunited with Diplo for the high-energy remix.
The glitchy, house-inspired song was performed live by Vince Staples at the first weekend of Coachella 2016, part of a set described as “unreal” by Stereogum. The remix of “Ghost” speeds up Staples’ vocals and warps them into something inhuman and chemical. Set to looping claps, syncopated percussion, and shape-shifting synths, the track teems with so much energy that it feels like it is going to burst at the seams.
“Ghost” is out now on Big Beat Records.
