Relishing in the warmth of global appraisal and considerable chart appendage, Avicii’s Levels has come to represent a new standard in mainstream Dance music. With the presence of an increasingly popular remodel from Flo-Rida already doing the rounds for Tim Bergling’s emotive club anthem, those lucky enough to brag official remixing duties were always going to have a lot to live up to.
Currently encapsulating the extended love affair between Dub Step and Electro House, ex Emo heartthrob turned solid House-Step seamstress Skrillex continues a brave spate of redressage amid speculation that this increasingly popular sub-genres popularity may not be going anywhere too fast. In the expected bass heavy outing of low wobbles and crazy pitch-play, Sonny Moore doesn’t do the original much wrong with this darker and distorted offering.
Standing somewhat closer to home as their Swedish counterpart’s of the same management, youthful duo Cazzette bring proceedings back to more familiar grounds with a noteworthy notch of fuzz and fury on their Swedish peers original. Though slightly slower off the ground, the final flight of their remix is one of glowing character to a duo evidently on the rise in the world of Electronic Dance Music.
