Another Sunday, another struggle to survive. This week, some majorly huge releases hit the internet and I couldn’t be more excited to bring them to you for your listening pleasure. Being that I’m tired as all hell from tearing up what little snow there is left in Summit County earlier today, I’ll keep the talking to a minimum and get right into it.
First, as the title acknowledges, Skrillex has given his touch to the biggest (yes, literally) house anthem of the year. Avicii and Skrillex have changed the face of electronic music in the past 12 months and this remix is a culmination of all that has changed. Bringing together the two biggest names in the game can only mean even bigger things are yet to come. Anyways, this track is exactly what you’d expect from reading which players are involved so get after it.
Next, a personal favorite here on this blog, Bingo Players released their newest single “Mode” this week and it should sound familiar – it’s well on its way to becoming one of my favorite tracks of theirs and one of the best anthems this year. What an amazing buildup!
Downtempo dubstep master Jakwob came out with a new free single this week and I absolutely love it. If you think you’ve never heard of Jakwob, think again – maybe this will spark your memory. Either way, this guy has a huge sound without overpowering your eardrums which is a beautiful thing in the wild world of dubstep.
Finally, Zeds Dead released their second of their two unreleased tracks (the first one was a re-edit of their “Eyes On Fire” remix that we covered last week) this week and this track is absolutely massive. Like, is there anything Zeds Dead can’t do? This is a straight electro-house banger that manages to stand out amidst their extensive catalog of genre-bending tracks. I absolutely love this song and think it’s one of the best electro house songs I’ve heard lately out of someone other than Porter Robinson or Wolfgang Gartner.
