In the last couple years however, Laufer has found a niche in the electronic music culture by making some of the sexiest remixes around. After reworking the likes of Drake, The Weekend, Aaliyah, Haerts, Burial and more, he's since linked up with R&B stars like Jeremih and Banks to create some forward-thinking, original R&B music that challenges anything else in the scene.

    When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
