Undoubtedly one of the biggest festival-smashers of 2011, Afrojack and R3hab’s Prutataa annihilated dancefloors all over the world for months on end. When First State joined the track with Sander van Doorn’s magnum opus Koko, Koko Prutataa came about, a symbolic and mind-boggling prototype to trouse that’s set the bar ever since for the budding subgenre. Now, the aftershock hits us as Afrojack’s Wall Recordings releases a remix pack for Prutataa.
The big standout here is the work of Darth & Vader. Going up against the other two, you’d think that the Brazilians might’ve choked under the pressure. You’d have thought wrong. The dark ones take the original and imbue it with sparkling breakdowns and an even fatter electro attack on the drop. Their mastery of great electrostep sounds is obvious when you compare the track to the original–not that the original is lacking in any way. Next is Angger Dimas, who also as per usual created something highly dangerous. This remix takes the award for originality, abandoning the electro foundation for whatever sound he thought worked–and it did. The hardest remix is obviously Dada Life’s. I won’t even explain it any further, as you all know what you’re getting with a Dada Life remix.
