Remixing is an art akin to a walk in another’s shoes. We get the chance to put on those rose colored specs and see the world through someone else’s eyes; to put on those headphones and listen through another producers ears. A remix takes something familiar and distorts it. The result is often beautiful, wildly different, or just plain interesting.
Everyone has their share of hits and misses, but this falls so short of missed that perhaps some will even mistake it for a hit. One listen of this cheapshot production is all I need. My only hope is that there’s a bit more “clarity” in Zedd’s upcoming Remix EP released on February 12th.
