Danish trance/electro producer Mikkas made an underrated splash in the EDM scene last year when his amazing remix of Unison landed on Porter Robinson’s Spitfire EP. Since then he’s been somewhat under the radar, but boy did he just have one helluva resurface with his remix of Emma Hewitt’s Rewind. Buckle your seatbelts for this one.
Already at #4 on Beatport’s trance chart, Mikkas’ take on Rewind is a schooling on how to produce a 21st century trance track. From the monstrous basslines in the drop to the gut-wrenching breakdowns lined with a haunting melody, this remix is a perfect marriage of vocal trance and electro sensibilities. This is most certainly the best remix I’ve heard yet to come from Emma Hewitt’s recent album, and possibly one of the best trance tracks of the year. Stream it here and pick it up on Beatport.
