Sullivan King puts a heavy dubstep spin on Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Save the World’
King begins with a self-written guitar melody that dives into the instantly recognizable lyrics from one of Swedish House Mafia’s most-streamed songs on Spotify. Behind the lyrics, a punk rock backbone gives rise to an anticipatory build, which falls into a screamo pre-drop. Dubstep mayhem follows, with a tinge of the original melody. The second drop thrusts listeners through thrashing synths, glitching percussion, and a heavy kick, twisting the uplifting energy of the original with heavy wobbles and bass.
