Deadmau5 and Kaskade – known jointly as Kx5 – just released a collection of remixes for their debut single, “Escape” featuring Hayla.
When Kaskade and deadmau5 joined forces for their new project Kx5, house heads around the globe rejoiced. They debuted the new project this year with the slow-burning hit “Escape” featuring Hayla. An expected massive success, the track is the number one most-played song on US Dance Radio this year. Today, the duo are releasing the official remix EP for “Escape”.
The EP compiles three pre-released remixes and introduces two brand new ones. Previous remixes from Spencer Brown, John Summit and Subtronics are joined by new tracks courtesy of LP Giobbi and LöKii. LP Giobbi is fast becoming a sought-after artist in dance music, having been selected as an “Artist To Watch” by Amazon Music and Spotify. Her remix uses elements of the original track’s vocals with a throbbing bass and striped back, skipping house beat, giving her production the feel-good vibe her tracks have become known for. LöKii, a previous collaborator with Kaskade, offers a more sinister take on the hit record. He leaves most of the vocals intact, but opens it up into a satisfying deep house drop.
Kx5 has promised more studio releases soon and will be performing an ambitious headlining show at the LA Coliseum in December. Having already been credited with the “Hottest Record in the World” by the BBC, Kx5 have proved the old adage that two brains are better than one. What happens when both brains are dance music legends in their own right? Well, that’s just pure magic.
