Crankdat takes an emotive turn in remixing Alison Wonderland’s ‘Messiah’
20-year-old production phenomenon Crankdat has become one of the most astronomically rising bass music producers of the past year. The young artist burst into the public eye in 2016 with remixes of fan favorites like Skrillex, Porter Robinson, The Chainsmokers, and DJ Snake. Alongside Crankdat’s various collaborations, these noteworthy remixes – or “re-cranks,” as he often dubs them – have set him on the map as one of the biggest genre-bending artists of 2016.
This powerhouse artist has proven that 2016 was only the start of his prolificness. Crankdat has recently released his third tune of 2017, showcasing his infectious melodies and signature creativity with a re-crank of “Messiah” by Alison Wonderland and M-Phazes. Crankdat has already shown us his many strokes of genius with future bass, trap, dubstep, and hard-hitting bass house, but this particular remix sheds light on his melodic and sensitive production capabilities. The song is rich with haunting melodies and horns, massive saw chords, and deeply emotional undertones.
