As given an exclusive first play by Steve Angello at Escape From Wonderland last weekend, the second release from Skrillex’s newly launched Owsla label gets itself an ultimate electro treatment from the man of the moment – Tommy Trash. Borrowing brilliantly from Shave It’s asper headmark sound, Zedd’s hottest record to date sees an aftershave alteration emerge from the now London based protagonist of stodgy electro house. Having pioneered a huge wave of warped and brutal offerings to go viral in the scene previously dominated by big room synths, many electro-house heads are to thank Trash, if they not already have, for pulling out champions like The End, Future Folk and a widespread bundle of hit remixes on Carry Me Home, Edge Of The Earth, One Last Ride and Alive.
The original’s occasionally dizzying reminiscence of the soundtracks in computer and TV games was taken seriously in consideration by the Australia-bred Thomas Olsen whom managed to turn it into one of the leading elements in this dynamic cut.
Besides the filthy remix from the Aussie producer, the Aftershave of Zedd’s most recent single release gets surprisingly hard take from Ryan Raddon, professionally known as Kaskade, whose admirable advancement lately includes the release of his seventh artist album, named “Fire & Ice“. Bringing forth a monstrous electro-house progression and kicking baselines, the American boasts a new production side of himself in opposition to his else happy and strictly progressive style. And to round proceedings off is 501 to deliver a vivid dubstep alteration.
