Whenever we get any release from someone on the mau5trap roster, we know it’s gonna be fire. This time it’s EDDIE who linked up with Blanke for a remix of “Abandon.”
The original EDDIE version is already melodic and emotional, but Blanke takes takes it up another level. He amps up the piano at the beginning, while also adding grittiness and heavy distortion. Blanke has been playing drum & bass under his ÆON alias and that influence is shining through here. The breakdown is fast paced and hard hitting; the final result is truly bonkers.
Here’s what Blanke had to say about the track:
Excited to be remixing one of my favourite songs from one of my best friends. Eddie and I go way back and I’ve loved everything he’s done for years now. The vocal on Abandon makes me feel so many things, but I knew I could twist it into something dark.
This is one track we can’t wait to hear live. You can check out this exclusive premiere below. Enjoy!
