Tracks like this make you wonder, what methodology did Zedd and his team use to determine the winner of the ‘Spectrum’ Beatport Remix Contest? With over two-thousand submissions, it’s hard to believe that every remix received equal review and consideration. I’m sure many were ruled out after thirty seconds of play but that doesn’t account for all the other remixes that were well produced and tastefully mixed. While Shreddie Mercury bathes in the glory of victory, and so he should, I understand why listeners & producers alike found difficulty in accepting the contest results. Since so many submissions prevented Shreddie from obtaining a unanimous win, it only seems fit to salute them, this one included.
From new sensations like Madeon to older and more treasured acts like Daft Punk, France has furnished some of the most influential figures in EDM. This is an amazing & authentic French production, the result of a collaboration between French duo The Noisy Freaks and French producer Guillaume Cloutou, aka Blaster. As a Noisy Freaks fan and supporter, I have yet to hear a release on their behalf that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy or love. I will comment and say that I think this remix jumps into the Spectrum vocals too quickly, but with what follows, I have no additional remarks other than the fact that this is griping funk based complextro jam with a bouncy and ebullient flow.
