Here at TSIS, we love a good collab, especially when it involves two of the game’s most prominent players. Kaskade and deadmau5 recently leveled up their collab game, formed a brand new super-duo, Kx5, and released their debut single, “Escape.” The tranced-out electro gem was everything we could have wanted and more from two of dance music’s venerable leaders. Today we share the explosive official remix only possible from the twisted mind of the one and only, Subtronics.
We’re all very aware of the bass-fueled grit and grime Subtronics can bring to a track. It’s a cornerstone of why he now graces main stages worldwide. We see the Philadelphia-born artist go deep in his bag for this one, pulling out heroic doses of spine-tingling sound design to flip this euphoric track into a gritty cut while still maintaining the dreamy melodies.
When asked about his experience with this remix, Subtronics shared:
I am beyond honored I was asked to remix “Escape” by Kx5. I’ve always been a long-time fan of Kaskade and deadmau5, and having them join me on stage at EDCLV, where I debuted the track, was surreal. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone with this one to make it unique, while still staying authentic to myself, and I am very happy with how it turned out!
Warning: Once you push play, there really is no escape. Stream Subtronics’ official remix for Kx5’s debut single, “Escape,” below. Enjoy!
