LA-based iSquare should consider themselves pretty fortunate. Working under the arm of Diddy himself and linked to Steve Angello, the group is already destined for great things. To top that off, their recent track Hey Sexy Lady is carrying with it a list of remixers of a caliber that I have hardly ever seen in my life. The list includes Skrillex, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Russ Chimes, Sultan & Ned Shepard, Chris Moody, and DJ Mr. White. Without even listening to a single remix, it’s obvious that they have achieved something phenomenal, but when you hear a few of these you’ll really put things into perspective.
Skrillex’s remix is up first and not surprisingly, it is unbelievable. It marks the direction that we expect Skrillex to be moving in with his productions and is a reflection of his newest sounds–dubsteppy electro goodness with excellent vocal work. This is obviously due in part to the fantastic edge the kid has, having been a singer in several bands prior to his solo career.
Afrojack’s remix is an interesting, much more electro-based approach, with many details that certainly mark it as his own sound. It’s a club banger and will likely be something he plays often in his sets into 2011 and beyond. Russ Chimes’ take is a bit sweet’n’sour, with some harder electro basslines, melodic elements, and a more chilled out drum section that helps carry the energy exactly where he wants it to go. There’s also a bit more of a focus on the original vocal track, which is also nicely done. Hit up the YouTube video at the bottom for the music vid of the original!
