Door slamming and shotgun firing in mind, the ascent of German Electro mogul Zedd has been anything but quiet. But in the wake of his essential vocal outing alongside Mathew Koma, ‘Spectrum’ receives a high profile remix package from the assorted cream of the modern Dance music crop.
While Armin Van Buuren’s paint by numbers approach to Trance leads to a positive leading remix from unfathomable Dutch club icon, Anjunabeats favorite Arty fuses the euphoria of Trance alongside the potent synth-led energy of Progressive House for a strong and original take on the Zedd original.
More commercially associated with his collaborative Duck Sauce side-project alongside Armand Van Helden, Montreal’s A-Trak unites with Dim Mak Favorite Clockwork for a score of distorted chord play and dissected remnants of Koma’s outstanding top line for by far the most inventive remix of the package.
Still hot off the wings of his debut single for Refune ‘Bong’, Germany’s Deniz Koyu offers a dark and heavyset take on the original, leaving room for Gregori Klosman & Tristan Garner and Congorock turn to the festival proof realms of Electro House for their own melodic yet piercing takes on Zedd’s handy work.
