i_o and No Mana join forces for a frenetic flip of Knife Party’s ‘Sleaze’
Remixing Knife Party classics is a potentially daunting task for the faint of heart. Two of mau5trap’s most prominent agents of techno, i_o and No Mana, have stepped up to the plate and blasted the challenge out of the park with an ultra heavy remix of Knife Party‘s 2012 track, “Sleaze.”
The producers maintain the raw suspense of the original, but transform its rolling moombahton feel into a relentless monster packed with techno and electro elements. The familiar vocal samples hold serve over a noticeably more up-tempo build. As the madness reaches boiling point, the song arrives at a demonically relentless drop. The kick takes no prisoners on this one, as subtle risers keep the tension steadily rising. It’s borderline impossible to hit as hard as classic Knife Party, but with their collaborative take i_o and No Mana have managed just that.
