Boombox Cartel made some huge waves back in April with the release of their Cartel EP. And as numerous unofficial remixes have been surfacing over the past months, a remix EP was only speculation till the duo confirmed it at the beginning of the week. Today, we’re happy to bring you the first of many to come with the premiere of Candyland’s remix of “Phoenix”.
It’s been a while since we’ve had the pleasure of sharing this Santa Barbara-based producer’s music on the site. For her latest offering, Candyland has taken on the first track off of Boombox Cartel’s EP and flipped it into a trap monstrosity. Starting off with the gentle pad and arp from the original, a piercing synth and heavy kick progress the track into a powerful drop filled with metallic stabs, distorted bass and some hard-hitting percussion. Check out Candyland's remix of “Phoenix” below and enjoy!
