When I was a teenager, deadmau5 and Kaskade were two pioneers that got me into dance music. “I Remember” was one of the tracks that changed everything for me in high school.
Fast forward a decade, and I was honored to be asked to remix “Escape.” I spent months working and submitted the final product. Rejected. Feeling down, I whipped up another from scratch while touring. Rejected.
Last shot. I booked a flight home with the intention of making a harder-edged version for my sets. 16 hours of work in 1 sitting later, the third attempt was born. The next thing I know, one of the hardest to please (deadmau5) was thrilled with it (lol). Kx5 debuted it at EDC, and the mau5 has been playing it in his solo sets. What an honor!
Taking a step back, the remix proves that when you fail, sometimes it’s meant to be. This is one of my favorite productions I’ve made in my career. If I gave up after the first two attempts, it wouldn’t exist. The track has been a mega-bomb in my own sets, and I hope it resonates with you. Out now.
