PREMIERE | Hex Cougar Delivers Next Level Melodic Trap Remix Of “Chemical” Off KRANE’s 'Fallout' Remix Album

krane fallout remix

There’s no doubt that KRANE’s debut album, Fallout, made a statement from the talented producer. Not only was Fallout KRANE’s first cohesive project, but it was banging from front to back, featuring some of the best work he’s ever done. That’s why, when he had announced the official remix album a little over a week ago, we couldn’t wait to see what it was going to sound like. With a lineup that included Rickyxsan, Gladiator, X&G, Vincent, Zeke Beats, Jaykode and more, we knew we were about to hear some big tunes, but the best of the album came from none other than Hex Cougar.

Hex Cougar has always been a producer that stood out from the rest of the pack. Whether he’s forging stunning melodies, violent bangers, or both, his production has always been super creative. His remix for KRANE’s “Chemicals” is no different, utilizing what sounds like a howling guitar riff as the centerpiece of the track. You don’t expect to hear electric guitar and pounding, bass heavy percussion in the same space, but Hex Cougar made it work flawlessly, a true testament to his skill in crafting one-of-a-kind tracks.

The entire Fallout remix album drops today, and we strongly suggest check out the rest of it after you rinse out this Hex Cougar remix. Enjoy!

Dog Blood's "Shred Or Die" Receives Incredible New Remix From Rising Producer Hex Cougar

Dog Blood

Hex Cougar is an artist to keep an eye on with his tracks capturing the essence of both melodic euphoria and heavy impact. His recent remix of Kaskade and deadmau5’s “Move For Me” is a prime example. For his latest effort, Hex Cougar has remixed Dog Blood’s track “Shred Or Die,” which leans more toward the grimier side of things.

From the get-go, we can tell that Hex Cougar has drawn inspiration from Dog Blood in this remix, with a quirky, upbeat intro complete with laser samples and tribal drums. Instead of the metal guitar progression from the original, he drops the track with a huge, distorted bass that tears through subtle, white noise. He brings back the vibe from the intro while continuing with another dirty, percussive bass synth to tie it all together.

Here’s what Hex Cougar had to say about his remix: “dog blood is one of my favorite EDM supergroups of all time, and in honor of them reuniting soon i wanted to release this lil flip i did of one of their best songs.” Hex Cougar, the Dog Blood fan that he is, has undoubtedly seen their recent announcement that they are working on new material. Maybe they’ll drop Hex Cougar’s “Shred Or Die” remix at their Hard Summer set next month. Check it out for yourself below and enjoy!

Kaskade & deadmau5 Receive Powerful Remix Of "Move For Me" By Rising Artist Hex Cougar

Deadmau5 press shot

It's always awesome to hear original and creative remixes of classics time and time again, seeing how each producer maintains the essence of the original track while putting their own spin on it. The latest throwback to get remixed is "Move For Me" by Kaskade and deadmau5.

The unique rework is done by rising artist Hex Cougar who we introduced to the site last month. We have a feeling though that you'll be seeing a lot more of him going forward. The talented LA producer impressed us the first time around with an original track called "How Does It Feel" and does so again on his "Move For Me" remix.

The song originally came out in 2008 on Ultra Records and quickly became a popular progressive house track. Hex truly brings out the emotion of the song in his remix and toughens it up with a gritty bassline that's contrasted by big melodic synths and heavy drum kicks.

It's hard to put his style of music into just one genre since he blends so many including future bass, trap and some dubstep. Listen to his unique take on "Move For Me" below and let us know what you think of it in the comment section. Enjoy!
