Just Blaze links up with New York DJ/production duo Mysto & Pizzi for "1Up!" The record takes its inspiration from the Super Mario Bros. 1986 theme song, not to mention the artwork, which features Mario grabbing his "1UP" mushroom. However, aside from the notable video game soundbites, this song is heavily built on a backdrop that fuses trap and trance. It's a sound scape that Just Blaze has toyed around with, most recently alongside Baauer on the Jay Z-featured "Higher." If he continues to go down this path of electronic music, there's no question Just Blaze will have the genre locked down like he does in hip-hop.
