There’s nothing quite like a dance remix of a soulful indie track. Rising producer DEVAULT has taken a spin on Mikky Ekko’s passionate, bouncing indie single “What’s It Like Now” and turned it into a dark electronic offering. Mikky gave DEVAULT a lot to work with, the original is packed with addicting vocal hooks and driving guitar riffs that easily translate to a dance banger. DEVAULT’s production skill is impressive and we’ve had him on the site before for his sensual original track “Don’t You Want To” ft. Ayelle out last year on Zeds Dead’s record label Deadbeats. The young producer has been busy since then – he’s released two singles this year already.
“What’s It Like Now” is a dark, emotional remix in line with DEVAULT’s signature style. Mikky’s vocals are filtered over ominous background synths that hint at the swinging synth drop to come. The breakdown before the drop incorporates haunting, high-pitched vocals from Mikky that echo into an atmospheric instrumental punctuated by crisp snares. It all comes together in a synth heavy, purposefully off-beat drop that’ll be sure to hook any listener. Enjoy!
