Elliphant and Skrillex release the ‘Only Getting Younger’ Remixes EP with Mad Decent
Following the release of Skrillex‘s monster Recess LP, Sonny collaborated with Mad Decent vocalist Elliphant. With the world in awe with Sonny’s studio album effort, “Only Getting Younger” fell slightly under the radar for such a quality collaboration. In typical followup fashion for Diplo‘s powerhouse label and the sheer power of Sonny’s name, the group of remixers represent the cream of the crop of upcoming electronic talent.
Supplying a satisfying big room beat to the track, TJR hollows out the vocal sections to bring emphasis to the saturated and compressed synth stabs that follow. While the vocal originally feels home in the depths of bass and hides beneath the sharp synths of Sonny Moore, the big room collaboration feels natural once the vocal is given room to breath.
New buds and recent Skrillex tour-mates Milo & Otis hop on the remix EP with their clever sound engineering and personality that shines through their music. The track is perfectly crafted for the closing of the summer festival season with its groovy baseline and catchy chord progression.
Don’t let her name fool you – Brazzabelle‘s remix may be the hardest hitting of all. Working the main stage dance floor-directed beat under the vocal, an aggressive kick amps the production with energy.
Falling into some hard drum-&-bass, Vice & Justyle nail an alternative to the popular genres represented by their fellow remixers with style. The Mad Decent name shows some love to some of the higher BPM tunes that originally brought the label to the spotlight.
With dripping breakdowns and sleek production under the vocal’s shine, “Only Getting Younger” gets an ultra-urban flip at the hands on NGHTMRE x Imanos, trap masterminds. The track cocks back and fires – literally – ntoa manipulation of sound similar to what trap’s elite have experimented with as of recent.
